Beautiful Photographs of Marilyn Monroe by Andre de Dienes, 1949

Andre de Dienes, one of the first and perhaps most renowned photographers of Marilyn, was born in Transylvania in 1913.

1938 would be the year in which de Dienes received a big break, in the form of Arnold Gingrich, editor of Esquire magazine offering him work with the magazine out in New York, and also financially helped with the cost of the trip. Upon his arrival de Dienes began work for Esquire as well as other big names such as fashion bible Vogue, Life magazine and also Montgomery Ward. The year 1945 would be a highly notable one for de Dienes, for this was the year he would first meet and work with the young lady the world would later come to know as Marilyn Monroe.
