WITH MARILYN. An Evening 1961

Marilyn Monroe was the quintessential American sex symbol and, to this day, still personifies the glitz and glamour of the American Hollywood industry. In With Marilyn: An Evening/1961, photographer Douglas Kirkland presents an extraordinary collection of photographs that allows us to pry into the mysterious woman, unveiling an intimate night that the world-class photographer shared with the icon. Although Marilyn was internationally adored and beloved by both women and men alike, the public had little insight into the pop culture icon's personal life. Kirkland changed all that with his assignment for the twenty-fifth anniversary issue of LOOK magazine photographing the movie star in 1961. Working in the casual sexiness of an unmade bed, Monroe and Kirkland together produced some of the most spontaneous and flirtatious photographs ever taken of the film legend, images that endure to the present and add a new facet to both the iconic superstar and her prolific photographer. Here, share in the fantasy of their evening and relive the moment through Kirkland's nostalgic retelling.
