A must have for any Marilyn fan. --Holly Madison
...looking at the pictures, it is truly as though we can see her in motion. --Immortal Marilyn
In memory, Marilyn Monroe--who died 53 years ago, on August 5, 1962--is perpetually bital and beautiful. That's the way photographer Douglas Kirkland saw her when they met in 1961. 'She was like the girl next door, ' he recalls. 'She wasn't this superstar. She laughed easily and was very comfortable to be around.' Kirkland's photographs of Monroe have been collected in the book With Marilyn: An Evening/1961.--Todd Leopold "CNN.com, August 6, 2015 "
In this book, Kirkland captured the essence of the woman as a beautiful, spontaneous and flirtatious lady. The images are stunning and a sample of the outstanding photographs that foretold of a world-class photographer's career. It is an extraordinary collection of images.--Noella Ballenger "Apogee Photo Magazine "
Picture the scene - you're alone in a room with Marilyn Monroe, Frank Sinatra crooning on the record player, Dom P rignon flowing freely. The dazzling pin-up is lying on a bed, striking a range of irresistable poses, dressed in nothing but the finest silk sheets. It sounds like an elaborate 1950s teen fantasy, but it is in fact the real-life scenario in which Canadian photographer Douglas Kirkland - then a baby-faced 27-year-old - found himself on the 17th November, 1961.--Daisy Woodward "AnOther Magazine, September 25, 2015 "
