Item description for Marilyn in New York: Photographs by Ed Feingersh by Lothar Schirmer...
New York photographer Ed Feingersh produced some of the most beautiful Marilyn Monroe shots there are, such as the icon Chanel No. 5 : Marilyn in her New York hotel suite putting the finishing touches to her evening attire with a touch of perfume for her dcollet. In 1955 she retreated to her exile in New York to avoid the constraints of her contract with Twentieth Century Fox and to take acting lessons with Lee Strasberg. For one whole week, Feingersh observed 29-year old Marilyn during her private and public life in New York. He followed her on her wanders through the city, joined her at costume fittings and at the Actors Studio, was along for an incognito jaunt on the subway and during her legendary ride on the pink elephant in Madison Square Garden. What he cap tured was the truly beautiful Marilyn Monroe oscillat ing between new self-confidence and extreme vulnerabi lity, who could be relaxed and joyful one moment, contemplative, dreamy and sad the next Marilyn the person, as it were.
