Marilyn Monroe – Bed Sitting (BD-85)

October 1953 — This rare and previously unpublished series of photos was taken at the guest villa of Joseph Schenck’s estate. The simple environment of only pillows, sheets, a robe and copper cup (very 1950s) showed Marilyn’s adaptability; a chameleon showing a different personality. It is extraordinary to see how many different looks she could produce and how comfortable she was with Milton behind the camera. Milton’s talent for simplicity is captured in these images.
