wayback wednesday: Marilyn

Bert Stern was the photographer for what turned about to be Marilyn Monroe's final photo shoot. In a Los Angeles hotel suite, over the course of three days, they took nearly 2,600 pictures, many of them nude and semi-nude, something she hadn't done since very early in her career. Stern could see that she was very troubled, but he also said, "She was beautiful and untouched, it was as though she were just beginning." Six weeks later she was dead.

This is one of those photographs.
