Douglas Kirkland: Marilyn & Coco

Thu  – Sun 

Kämp Galleria, Pohjoisesplanadi 33, Helsinki

The Finnish Museum of Photography's new exhibition space, named K1, will be opened with an inaugural showcase, featuring two exhibitions in one — Coco Chanel and An Evening with Marilyn — from American photographer Douglas Kirkland (b. 1934). The photographs depict two iconic women who developed a deep understanding of the power of vision and gaze.

Kirkland photographed Marilyn Monroe and Coco Chanel in the early 1960s while working at Look magazine. The images from six decades in the past deliver a dose of the Hollywood starlet cult and the history of fashion. Viewed today, the works offer a direct view into the early heyday of photography as a central feature of modern consumer culture. The exhibition also explores the life cycles of cultural icons, and the raw power of photography.

Douglas Kirkland is a photographer with a long career in Hollywood, known mainly for shooting renowned stars. He has also worked on more than 150 feature film productions.
