He has also worked together with the great director Stanley Kubrick on the set of “2001 A Space Odyssey”. The exhibition “Douglas Kirkland: A life in pictures” will be opened free to the public from August 30th to September 6th (10am to 6pm). In exhibition the 88 most important photos from Kirkland career presented in two display areas: 58 pictures dedicated to international celebrities like Marylin Monroe, Marlene Dietrich, Brigitte Bardot, Warren Beauty, Salma Hayek, Nicole Kidman, John Lennon, Susan Sarandon, Elizabeth Taylor, Rachel Welch and many more will propose a suggestive path in two fascinating cloisters of the monumental complex of the old monastery of San Salvador.
