Availability: Out of stock

Andre de DIENES, photographer. Marilyn Monroe/Norma Jeane, model. Original Silver Gelatin Press Photo. Size: 8 x 10 inches. Printed by Dienes in his Studio with his stamp and notes on the verso, 1945. Includes the certificate of authenticity from the Dienes archives.

Condition: Beautiful shiny glossy style silver gelatin printing, minor flaws, unmatted, unframed. Guaranteed original. My example pics were taken with a camera - not a scan - so there may be some visible tripod reflections. Dienes writes the year 1945 and the name Norma Jean (no final e) on the back. This photo is from Monroe's very first photo sessions.

"De Dienes' association with Marilyn Monroe began in 1945 when he hired her for her first modeling job at age 19. A five week road trip photographing the young Norma Jeane across California, Nevada, and New Mexico resulted in a love affair and numerous magazine covers around the world. Their working relationship continued until 1953. Today, de Dienes' images of Monroe are considered by most to be the best studies ever taken of her."
