Marilyn photographed by J.W Richardson, 1953.
“I like to put my feelings into my photographs.”
RIP Bert Stern, who photographed Marilyn over a three day period in 1962, just six weeks before her death. Stern died in Manhattan on Tuesday after a long, incredibly successful career as a photographer.
"I wanted her to look fresh and clean, so I wondered what I could do with this most beautiful girl to make her look talcum-powdered and adorable. What would I give her to wear that would blow in the breeze and be fun and pretty?" - William Travilla, designer of the most famous dress in film history, on its creation.
I haven’t seen it yet either :’( I live in Ireland so I’m in the same position as you are, if I find a link I will post it for sure though.
"I know of few actresses who have this incredible talent for communicating with a camera lens. She would try to seduce a camera as if it were a human being." - Philippe Halsman on Marilyn Monroe.
