AMPAS to unspool Kirkland's '80 at 80'

Still photographer Douglas Kirkland’s portraits of 80 cinematographers — people like Haskell Wexler, Vilmos Zsigmond, John Bailey and Linda Brown — will be exhibited at the Academy of Motion Picture Arts & Sciences starting Aug. 26.

The show, titled “80 at 80: Eighty Portraits of Cinematographers,” will commemorate the 80th anniversary of the American Society of Cinematographers. It runs through Oct. 31.

Kirkland has worked on the sets of more than 100 motion pictures and has published a book of his celebrity portraits, “Light Years,” as well as other tomes on motion pictures and photography.

In “80 at 80,” he has turned his lens on cinematographers, capturing men and women whose faces are largely unknown but whose images on film are often recognized around the world.

The portraits were shot as part of Kodak’s “On Film” series. Exhibition is sponsored by the Professional Photography Division of Eastman Kodak Co.

Free and open to the public, “80 at 80” can be seen 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Tuesday through Friday and noon to 6 p.m. weekends. The Academy is at 8949 Wilshire Blvd., Beverly Hills.
