1953 年、LOOK magazineの写真家John Vachonは、カナダのロッキー山脈で Marilyn Monroe の多数のスナップ写真を撮影した。そのときの写真は、3枚しか今まで発表されていない。この美しいハードカバーの書籍は、セックスシンボルである彼女の私 的な、無防備な瞬間をとらえた未発表のその写真:プールサイドでくつろぎ、スキーリフトに乗り、 Joe DiMaggioに寄り添う姿、を初めてまとめたものである。Vachonのファックス、手紙、そして洞察力のあるエッセイを収録。102枚の白黒写真。
Picture this: A master photographer shoots the most breathtaking movie star of her time high in the Canadian Rockies in the summer of 1953. And the negatives are filed away for nearly 60 years — most never seen until now! It was yet another assignment for LOOK magazine staff photographer John Vachon. But when he arrived in Banff, Alberta, in mid-August of 1953 to shoot Marilyn Monroe on location making River of No Return, Vachon encountered an opportunity never afforded the many great photographers who took pictures of Marilyn during her short life. Due to an injured ankle that prevented her from filming, Vachon got access to Marilyn over a period of several days. Vachon's lens captured her in a variety of contexts and countenances. Here is Marilyn the way we want to remember her: luminous, sexually charismatic, smiling radiantly — even on crutches. This extraordinary portfolio of revealing images ranges from her mugging poolside to riding high on a ski lift to nuzzling with her then-husband-to-be, the legendary Joe DiMaggio — the only time that the two posed formally together for a photographer. In his ability to present her humanity without either idealization or guile, Vachon has given the legions of Marilyn fans worldwide a very rarely seen portrait of their idol. 102 duotone photos. Text by Brian Wallis. A Calla Editions Original.

In August of 1953 documentary photographer John Vachon was given an assignment by Look magazine. The assignment would take him away from his family vacation and to Canada for two weeks. John was asked to take photos of Marilyn Monroe (what a hard job) for Look magazine. Marilyn at the time was at the top of her success. She had just completed Gentlemen Prefer Blondes and was engaged to baseball legend Joe DiMaggio. She was in the Canadian Rockies to film, The River Of No Return.
Despite this John was not so sure he would find Marilyn an easy subject to photograph. Many movie stars of the time would be surrounded by their handlers making the photographer's job harder to do. Would he be able to capture a different side to Marilyn? The side that showed the "real Marilyn"?
I think you will find that the answer is yes! John took over 100 photos of Marilyn capturing her at her very best. The photos in this book are spectacular. They capture Marilyn in candid moments: snuggling with Joe Dimaggio and staged moments: Marilyn pouting in a two-piece bathing suit on crutches. These photos prove that Marilyn and the camera were best friends. She understood photography and how to take a great photo.
I have been a Marilyn fan/collector for over 20 years. I have only seen a few of the photos shown in this book. If you are looking for rare Marilyn "Marilyn August 1953: The Lost Look Photos" is it.
The book consists of only black & white photos- but, they are just lovely. The book is well made and a perfect coffee table size. The story behind the photographs is also very interesting and will give you a glimpse into Marilyn's life at the time.
