Marilyn Monroe - Home session (1953)
Another Andre de Dienes session (it's him who shot the beach series 4 years before that I posted here) in 1953. Marilyn seems so natural, like if she was with her boyfriend and not with a photograph (you may say that he was both but I don't think so). It makes these pictures so real and present it's quite disturbing. Yes, it's like we are here with them, sharing these moments of quiet and sensual pleasure. If we could be more aware how life's good moments are short and never happen again, we would learn to appreciate every piece of them. But we don't. Hope Marilyn has.
