Lawrence Schiller, renowned photographer, director and author, famously photographed Marilyn Monroe multiple times near the end of her life. Hollywood starlet. Sex symbol. American icon. Marilyn Monroes status as an enduring figure of glamour made her one of the most famous women in American history.

From the 1960 candid image shot during the filming of Lets Make Love, to the legendary poolside photoshoot on the set of Somethings Got To Give in 1962, each image pays homage to the vibrant, unforgettable woman that was Marilyn Monroe through the lens of a virtuoso.
