The Lost Marilyn Nudes from Her Last On-Set Photo Shoot

It was the assignment of an ambitious young photographer’s dreams: capturing Hollywood’s sexiest star for Look magazine in 1960. Lawrence Schiller’s chemistry with Marilyn Monroe seemed promising, and their professional relationship deepened when he photographed her on the set of her final, never-finished movie, Something’s Got to Give. The breathtaking nude shots from that shoot, some unpublished till now.
