FINAL SHOOT !

An IMPORTANT and Extremely RARE, Vintage  ORIGINAL Photograph depicting Marilyn Monroe as captured by George Barris (1922-2016). 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, less than 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.

When World War II broke out, George was the official army photographer from 1942-1945 and was assigned to General Dwight D. Eisenhower’s victory homecoming celebration. George created an album of the events. He received a special album autographed by General Eisenhower.
