1953

About

A vintage silver-gelatin print of Marilyn Monroe taken in 1953 by Andre de Dienes. The photo was hand printed and stamped circa 1958 by the photographer and is printed on a double-weight fiber paper. This beautiful image was originally captured at Marilyn's bungalow at the Bel Air Hotel on Stone Canyon during 1953. The photo is from 'The Morning Sitting (Gym') during which De Dienes photographed a highly energetic and playful Marilyn stretching and working out with weights. André de Dienes, is one of the earliest and perhaps best known photographers of Marilyn. His life was tragically turned upside down at the age of fifteen, when his mother committed suicide; thus forcing him to leave home in search of work.Travelling across Europe, mostly on foot, he settled for a while in Tunisia, North Africa, where he made money doing odd jobs. He soon raised enough money to buy his first camera, a 35mm Retina. After capturing the beautiful local colours, he continued his travels, arriving in Paris in 1933 to study art. Whilst in the French capital, he bought his second camera, a Rolleiflex, and a life-long passion for photography was born. As well as his iconic photoshoots with Marilyn, the ultimate photographic subject, De Dienes would go on to enjoy a celebrated career, photographing such Hollywood heavyweights as Marlon Brando, Elizabeth Taylor, Ingrid Bergman, Fred Astaire, Jane Russell, Anita Ekberg and Ronald Reagan.
