Mobile Version – Part 1

Douglas Kirkland has photographed numerous celebrities but everyone wants to know first about Marilyn Monroe. Douglas shares what Marilyn was really like. At the time, he was a young frightened photographer working with Marilyn for LOOK Magazine. Marilyn liked still photography better than motion pictures because she could live it in that there was no script so Marilyn could be more creative. Their evening was sexually and creatively charged.
