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. by graciela

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.” by beth

This programme is for the first appearance of the great singer and dancer Josephine Baker in London in 1933. She had been a legend in Paris since her first appearance, wearing little more than a feather, in La Revue Nègre in 1925. The London programme's photographs show her wearing considerably more than her famous banana skirt. by estela

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. by HARVEST

"This was taken backstage at the Almeida theatre in 1989, as part of a personal project I was doing on dressing rooms. Tilda [Swinton] was working almost exclusively with Derek Jarman at the time...Tilda was only lit by a grubby little bulb, so it's fortunate it came out how it did. She was lost in her thoughts – a lot was going on in her life at the time – so she didn't notice me until I took the first shot."  -Simon Annand by pam
