Synopsis: Por encargo de la revista Vogue, el prestigioso fotógrafo Bert Stern tomó una serire de fotografías de Marilyn, en las que la actriz aparece sensual y casi desnuda.

Estas nunca fueron publicadas por considerarse demasiado espontáneas, por lo que Stern realizó una segunda sesión con la actriz completamente vestida y maquillada. La muerte de Marilyn tuvo lugar el mismo día que salía la revista que incluía sus fotografías, en 1962. Este libro recoge las mejores 59 fotografías de ambas sesiones y nos muestra una Marilyn más cercana y accesible, alejada de la leyenda en que se ha convertido para generaciones.

English Description

Bert Stern?s Favorite Photos of an American Icon

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 amazing pictures—fashion, portrait, and nude studies—of indescribable sensual and human vibrancy, of which Mr. Stern?s favorites are published in this book.

The monumental body of work by the master photographer and the
Hollywood actress marks a climax in the history of star photography. It is a unique affirmation of the erotic dimension of photography and the eroticism of taking photos, and it is the world?s finest tribute to Marilyn Monroe.

In 1954 Bert Stern opened his first studio in New York. Besides
working for IBM, Vogue, Glamour, Life, Revlon, and Smirnoff, he is famous for his portraits of celebrities such as Anna Nicole Smith, Elizabeth Taylor, Gary Cooper, Louis Armstrong, Catherine Deneuve, as well as Marilyn Monroe.

Accompanying the incredible photos are Marilyn?s conversations with the photographer:
“I?m not going to take off my pants,? she declared.
“Just roll them down, then.?
She rolled them way down low on her hips so I could see the label, which read JAX.
I saw the scar now. It was on the right side of her stomach. A blemish, an imperfection that only made her seem more vulnerable and accentuated the incredible smoothness of her skin.
She was the color of champagne, the color of alabaster.
We were ready to begin.
