This is the story of a great Ménage à Trois: Douglas, Francoise, and the Camera.
“When We Were Young” – is a delicious glimpse into a reflection of a young couple falling in love in a lost era.
“The Olympus Pen Camera was very important to me. It takes pictures half the size of a traditional 35mm camera but allows you to shoot quickly, and shoot more pictures. Stanley Kubrick introduced me to this on the set of, “2001: A Space Odyssey,” He always carried one of these with him, and he said I should get one, I did, and it resulted in my making this book.” –Douglas Kirkland on “When We Were Young”
That little camera allowed Douglas to capture moments that would normally slide into oblivion- the breath between the words of his intimate life
