    About the Photo

    Full Title: Marilyn Monroe poses on the patio outside her home

    Year: 1953

    Celebrity: Marilyn Monroe

    Photographer: Alfred Eisenstaedt

    Story behind the Image:

    By 1953, the year this photo was shot, Marilyn Monroe was indisputably an actress on the rise. In 1953 alone she would star in three memorable movies: Niagara, How to Marry a Millionaire and Gentlemen Prefer Blondes. Shot by arguably the world’s most famous photographer, Alfred Eisenstaedt, This and the other images that he captured for LIFE on that afternoon in 1953 remain not only among the warmest, most casually intimate photos of Marilyn that anyone ever made. They also serve as a poignant record of a young woman on the very cusp of genuine superstardom.

    An artist and a master craftsman with the camera, the German-born Eisenstaedt had by the time of this shoot in1953, made several of the 20th century’s most recognizable, iconic pictures. His V - J Day “The Kiss”, is arguably the single most famous photograph ever made. He had travelled everywhere and photographed most everyone, from Hitler and Hemingway to Oppenheimer and Einstein.
