Located in New York’s Milk Gallery, there featured over 60 images of Monroe from some very well known photographers ( a lot of the images have never been posted public). The exhibition showed Monroe’s transformation from a teenager to one of Hollywood’s all-time most glamorous screen icons. The show only opened for 2 days (between November 10 – 12), and the whole intention was to honor Weinstein’s new film “My Week With Marilyn” – due in UK cinemas Friday November 25.
These photographs were shot on the beach by Andre De Dienes.
Monroe’s innocence & intelligent & sexual features all shows within the lens of the photographers.
Highlights of the exhibition included the famous photographer Bert Stern’s photo of Monroe. A black Dior gown, shot for Vogue magazine, taken six weeks before Monroe’s death in 1962. The dress was recreated especially for the display.
