Stern “saw something in [Marilyn]: divinity, God, living, passion.” He describes the experience as if “somehow there was another force guiding everything . . . a magical force—[a] physical force that exists in all of us because we are our pictures; we are a visual experience.” – Vanity Fair 2013
Bert Stern shot the famous Last Sitting with Marilyn along with many other iconic photographs. This weekend in LA we can see a documentary about the man and his career, as well as his co-creative relationship with the filmmaker, Shannah Laumeister.
