The Unforgettable Marilyn

Paris ·

12.12.14 → 25.02.15

The Galerie de l’Instant presents the 3rd exhibition, dedicated to the Star of Stars, the Unforgettable Marilyn Monroe!
Julia Gragnon shares new images of the actress, shy and hiding under a sheet, at the age of 20 for André De Dienes, anonymous and reading the newspaper, in New York, near a couple of indifferent lovers by Sam Shaw, radiant and natural in the arms of her husband Arthur Miller, but provocative for the objective of the New York reporter Weegee, or candid in chiffon dress for Philippe Halsman, iconic in tutu for his friend Milton Greene, and provocative, insolent alongside Bert Stern, for the mythical “Last Session”, 2 months before his death…
Marilyn never ceases to move and fascinate us, her aura crosses time and generations as if by magic!
