Several photographs taken of Marilyn earlier in her life—the ones she especially liked—show her reading.
Marilyn Monroe, "The Last Sitting", by Bert Stern, 1962 At age 36, taken 1 week before her death. During her final photoshoot before her death, Bert Stern created some stunning photographs of Marilyn Monroe. However, on the photos that Marilyn didn’t like, she smeared her red lipstick over the negative images to deter them from being published. After her death, Stern developed those photos and they came out more beautiful than ever.
marilyn monroe, like the biography she wrote telling about her life, good read.
Marilyn sings to the troops in Korea, 1954. She was quoted as saying that it was the highlight of her life, and that it was freezing cold, but she didn't feel a thing except good.
she liked her men like her cocktails...neat, but with a twist
She was an artist and her life was her canvas
Marilyn Monroe, “The Last Sitting,” 1962. “[Marilyn] went off into the bathroom and changed, and came out, lifted up one of the layers so that you could see through it, and she said, ‘How’s this for 36?’” The scar apparent on her stomach is from a gall-bladder surgery that the actress underwent earlier the same year.

“Marilyn Monroe reading ULYSSES” by Eve Arnold, Long Island, 1954 In Joyce and Popular Culture, R.B. Kershner quotes a letter from Arnold about the day she took the shot:We worked on a beach on Long Island…I asked her what she was reading when I went to pick her up (I was trying to get an idea of how she spent her time). She she kept Ulysses in her car and had been reading it for a long time. She said she loved the sound of it and would read it aloud to herself to try to make sense
The photo was taken in 1910. It’s the last photograph taken of Florence Nightingale. (It's rare: she was reluctant throughout her life to be photographed.) It shows 90 year old Florence in her bedroom at her home in London. The photo was taken by Lizzie Caswall Smith. On the back of the photo Smith wrote, “Taken just before she died, house near Park Lane. The only photograph I ever took out of studio. I shall never forget the experience.”
