Of all the books I have done, at this point in my life, this is the most important one. Female 1: Here is somebody who has has been doing brilliant work from the very beginning. And I thought this is really a wonderful opportunity to say, this is the career of Douglas Kirkland. Male 1: How did I end up where I am? And it was a lot of series of small steps. In this book, I recall and recount all of these steps that occurred.

That click. That small click is really where my career and my excitement about photography began. When I worked with Marilyn, was a Hasselblad. I did not say to Marilyn put your arm up, do this, do that. I just talked. The flirting. The vibes going back between us. That went into the camera. It's quite overwhelming when somebody says, show your life's work. As a photographer, you want your pictures to look a certain way.

And you want your work to be represented at its very best. I have no intention of ever retiring. As long as this hand can lift a camera and to push that button, I want to keep doing it. It's the joy of my life. And this is an ultimate expression for me.
