Inspirational Wednesday for the Red Carpet.

Photographers are a different kind of celebrity but in the eyes of famous people, their work is essential.
They convey another view of the stars, that is that they really bring out the art in fame.

Douglas Kirkland.

Douglas Kirkland started off as a magazine photographer but his acclaimed reputation came when he published photos of Marilyn Monroe in a bed of white sheets. Afterwards, nothing could stop him: he photographed intellectuals (Stephen Hawking), artists (Man Ray), but mostly celebrities such as Coco Chanel, Mick Jagger, Brigitte Bardot. The list doesn’t stop. Somehow, as you can see below, Kirkland manages to capture the attitude and personality of the person posing.

Hedi Slimane.

Hedi Slimane is well known as a fashion designer but he has several hidden talents. Having access to fashion’s elite, he can give another atmosphere to celebrity photography. All of his work is in black and white and is charged with mystery and delicacy. The photos below show that he really has a rockish vibe, not only by the models he chose, but by the installations and the environment they are put in. A world of contrasts, that proves celebrities as sensitive as we can be.
