From Angelina Jolie and Brigitte Bardot to Baz Luhrmann and Antonio Banderas, photographer Douglas Kirkland has been chronicling the making of films for more than half a century through his lens. He joined Look Magazine in his twenties, and worked for Life Magazine during the golden age of photojournalism, in the 1960s-1970s. He has photographed such luminaries as Marilyn Monroe, Elizabeth Taylor, and Marlene Dietrich, and has worked on the sets of hundreds of motion pictures. His riveting images, portraying an array of world icons, take us behind the scenes to reveal much about the way movies are made.
Freeze Frame: Second Cut, his latest book published by Glitterati, is a glamorous volume in a luxurious oversized format, chock-full of amazing portraits of the most illustrious and talented movie stars, directors, and performers from the last half-century of movie-making. Going beyond the first edition, this expansion of Kirkland’s Freeze Frame features more than 190 new photographs and includes exclusive tales of behind-the-scenes action on the sets of the biggest Hollywood films in the past 50 years. Organized by decade, this photographic title balances glitz and glamour with honesty and insight.
