Throughout his career, famed photographer Douglas Kirkland has photographed everyone from iconic fashion designer, Coco Chanel to Marilyn Monroe and Sophia Loren. His work has been exhibited worldwide. Today, Mr Kirkland has teamed up with the Woolrich brand to celebrate its 180th Anniversary.
To say the photographer's images are extraordinary is an understatement. For the Woolrich project, his subjects included Hollywood starlet, Elle Fanning, Brendan Fraser, artist Maxim Ludwig and the Santa Fe Seven, and many others. It was an honor to be in attendance.
"Being asked to photograph 18 portraits for the 180 Anniversary of Woolrich and the classic Arctic Parka was a privilege, but when I was told to follow my imagination it became a dream project. I decided to create two kinds of portraits on each subject: the first with the large ancient 8x10 (20x25cm) black and white film camera, to reach back to earliest traditional days of Woolrich and then in color, using the ultimate in digital technology to express the span and trendiness of the brand." ~Douglas Kirkland
