Lawrence Schiller, Marilyn & Me: A Memoir in Words and Pictu

Lawrence Schiller

Edition:Limited edition

Publisher:Taschen GmbH

Just months before her death, Marilyn Monroe gave a young photographer his big break, and this is his story"You're already famous, now you're going to make me famous,“ photographer Lawrence Schiller said to Marilyn Monroe as they discussed the photos he was about to shoot of her. ”Don't be so cocky,“ Marilyn replied, ”photographers can be easily replaced.“ The year was 1962, and Schiller, 25, was on assignment for ”Paris Match" magazine. He already knew Marilyn — they had met on the set of "Let's Make Love" — but nothing could have prepared him for the day she appeared nude during a swimming pool scene for the motion picture" Something's Got to Give.“”Marilyn & Me" is an intimate story of a legend before her fall and a young photographer on his way to the top. Schiller's original text and extraordinary photographs—over two thirds of which have never or rarely been published—take us back to that time, and to the surprising connection that allowed Marilyn to bond with a kid from Brooklyn, a kid with a lot of ambition but very little experience. Now, 50 years later, TASCHEN is publishing Lawrence Schiller's story as a signed, numbered monograph limited to 1,962 copies, for the year of Monroe's untimely death. Schiller's is a story that has never been told before, and he tells it with tact, humor, and compassion. The result is a real and unexpected portrait that captures the star in the midst of her final struggle.Collector's Edition of 1,712 numbered copies (books numbered No. 251-1,962) signed by the photographer.
