Photographer Douglas Kirkland
Gabrielle Coco Chanel is one of my favorite petites. Her passion for pursuing her work and her take no shit attitude and her strength. How she chose to be a women in business over love can prove her passion, during a time when it wasn't common for a women to work so much and went through a life of deep loneliness because of it, despite the glory and fame. If you haven't read the book Chanel: A Women of Her Own then go get it, it's one of my favorite books! See, it's on my bookshelf here below.
In the book there are many photographs and Axel Madsen really details Chanel's life so carefully and beautifully. There are also five other new books out recently to check out on Chanel.
Also you can research and check out the beautiful photographs (here) of Coco Chanel by Douglas Kirkland who caught her in the moment of doing her passion in the day and the life style.
You may have heard of Douglas Kirkland also because he shot Marilyn Monroe and has a book called An Evening With Marilyn with beautiful and intimate photographs of her.
