In July of 1962 a young photographer named George Barris would make history.  He would photograph the most famous movie star of all time , Marilyn Monroe on Santa Monica Beach on July 13, 1962.  At that time he could not have known he would be the last person to ever photograph Ms Monroe as her tragic and highly suspicious death would be just three weeks later.  Any ORIGINAL photos from that day are extremely rare and desirable .. 

Rare Photo of Marilyn Monroe being lifted up by her long time personal makeup artist Alan "Whitey" Snyder (Google his name for his Wiki page history), as her photographer George Barris captures the moment and intimate image.

A beautiful photograph of Marilyn Monroe as captured and SIGNED by the photographer, George Barris. The New York City photographer who grew up in Manhattan's Lower East Side carries the distinction of being the last photographer to conduct an official photo shoot with Monroe, just a month before her death. Barris who shot for Parade & Cosmopolitan Magazine first met and photographed Marilyn in New York in 1954 where she was on location for the film, "The Seven Year Itch". The two became close friends. While collaborating on an upcoming book with Marilyn, Barris photographed Marilyn during a photo session that took place on July 13, 1962 in the Santa Monica Beach area in CA. Sadly, this would be Marilyn's FINAL photo shoot as she tragically died less than a month later on August 3rd, 1962. Barris is one of the last people still alive who knew Marilyn personally.
This modern photo was made and signed by Barris in the 1980's and comes from one of the prominent collection of Marilyn Monroe photographs. Barris' signature is executed in black ink on the lower right and grades a strong 8 on a 10 scale. The photo comes with our company's COA and we offer a lifetime guarantee that the signature of Barris is 100% authentic
