Bert Stern Marilyn Monroe The Complete Last Sitting 2571 Photographs English HC
Contains photographs of Marilyn Monroe taken only six weeks before her death. Good plus in a very good dust jacket. Bert Stern, the famous commercial and fashion photographer of the 60s, was the last to be granted a sitting by Marilyn Monroe six weeks before her tragic death. The three day session yielded nearly 2,600 pictures, fashion, portrait, and nude studies of indescribable sensual and human vibrancy, of which no more than 20 were published. And yet these few photographs ineradicably shaped our image of Marilyn Monroe. This book presents the complete set of 2,571 photos. The monumental body of work by the master photographer and the Hollywood actress marks a climax in the history of star photography, both in quantity and quality. It is a unique affirmation of the erotic dimension of photography and the eroticism of taking photos, and it is the world's finest and largest tribute to Marilyn Monroe.
