Following the exhibition, the portraits will become part of the Academy's Margaret Herrick Library photograph collection.

Kirkland has been capturing iconic images of motion picture luminaries for more than five decades, revealing as well as immortalizing such legends as Elizabeth Taylor, Marilyn Monroe, Orson Welles, Audrey Hepburn and Paul Newman. Also well known as a set photographer, he has worked on more than 100 films, including "The Sound of Music," "Out of Africa," "Titanic" and "Moulin Rouge."  He recently traveled to Australia to serve as special set photographer on Baz Luhrmann's "The Great Gatsby," scheduled for release in 2012.

"Out of Character" will be open Tuesday to Friday from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. and weekends from noon to 6 p.m. Admission is free. The Grand Lobby Gallery is located at the Academy's headquarters at 8949 Wilshire Boulevard in Beverly Hills.
