In a series of shots taken by photojournalist Eve Arnold, the iconic star was snapped in her relaxed side and all the shots were taken at the peak of her fame in the late 1950s and early 60s.
A series of limited edition prints of iconic star Marilyn Monroe have emerged. In one of the newly-released images, Marilyn was seen quite different from her bombshell title and glamorous life as she showed her relaxed side in a white shirt and twin plaited pigtails. The shot was taken on set of her 1961 film "The Misfits".
Still on the set of "The Misfits", Marilyn posed for a black-and-white image, which is called "Marilyn And Friend", showing her in a nice polka-dot dress while carrying a puppy. Other shots show more beauties of Marilyn when she read a movie script between takes, when she stood gracefully with towel wrapping her upper-body and also when she chatted with her co-star Montgomery Clift at a trailer.
The shots were taken by American photojournalist Eve Arnold at the peak of Monroe's fame in the late 1950s and early 60s. Of the collection, the 98-year-old photojournalist said, as quoted by Daily Mail, "She liked my pictures and was canny enough to realize that they were a fresh approach for presenting her."
"A looser, more intimate look than the posed studio portraits she was used to in Hollywood," Eve added. "It became a bond between us... Marilyn was very important in my career. I think I was helpful in hers too."
