Douglas Kirkland"I've been very lucky because I got interested I photography when I was very young ... and photography's been very good to me. It's been a good living but it's been a very good life and I feel a great passion for it. It's taken me to places. It's opened doors to me. Even to this day I feel I can go anyplace in the world I wish. I mean it's that kind of a passport for me. And I can, within reason, get to just about anyone I would like to photograph if I really want to. How many people have a life like that? That's what photography has been to me. I'm very lucky and I realize it.

It's an interesting thing to think about -- how I would like photography to regard me or remember me. I would like to be remembered as a guy who first truly loves the camera, loves photography. Second, he loves the things that he was allowed to do as a result of it. And, thirdly, I hope that somebody likes the images that I leave behind."
