In his fascinating foreword to the book, Bert Stern looks back on that momentous sitting, offering a revealing, naked portrait of Marilyn the personof a vulnerable, confused woman who although at the apex of her career, had relinquished control of her lifeand of the fashion world of the early 1960s, with its new openness towards drugs, sex, and art. From the glamorous, sophisticated photos which Vogue would publish in a black-and-white memorial spread, to the less restrained color shots which Stern coaxed out of Marilyn during an intense, exhausting session, this collection covers nearly every aspect of modern photography: portraiture, fashion-driven, erotic, and artistic. But more than a comprehensive display of Sterns immeasurable talents, these photographs combine to create an homage to Americas first goddess. A woman we invented, but whom we could never really know.
