Kirkland captures the blonde bombshell, Brigitte Bardot, considered as the sex symbol of the 20th century, in Mexico City. The pictures were shot in 1965 during the filming of Viva Maria! Douglas Kirkland was brought on as a special photographer for the movie. Kirkland’s portrait of Bardot captures her natural eroticism, a picture of an unrestricted youth full of desire, evoking a sexuality not forced but felt.
Therefore, Bardot’s unapologetic sexuality created a force that inspired the sexual revolution of the 1960s. With a gaze that seems to look through the viewer and into the beyond, Kirkland’s photo of Bardot symbolises the profound effect the actress would have on Hollywood censorship. Bardot’s rebellious attitude towards traditional depictions of femininity helped break down barriers for the public and society at large.
