Legends Online
Because Kirkland often photographs actors or models several times during their career, he frequently gets the rare opportunity to re-think how he approaches the subject. Having photographed actor Morgan Freeman on a previous occasion for  New York magazine, he knew little about the actor and wasn't totally satisfied with the results.

"By the next time we met, I had seen him in some films and I'd seen the work he did -- I understood the man much better the second time -- I know this is a much better photograph than the first ones I took."
