An Historic Marilyn Monroe Exhibition to Open at the Andrew Weiss Gallery, Beverly Hills

94 year old Bill Carroll, the last living photographer of Norma Jeane, will be in attendance of the launch of a major photography exhibition-“Becoming Marilyn” at the Andrew Weiss Gallery June 25, 2010 to commemorate the 84th birthday of the timeless icon of glamour, Marilyn Monroe. The show will feature the world’s most in-depth collection of Marilyn Monroe photographs, including Bill Carroll’s rarely seen photos from 1945, to the very last pictures ever taken of her.

The photographic journey of Marilyn Monroe begins with those by Bill Carroll, who captured the image of a beautiful 19 year old girl, dreaming of stardom on a sunny beach in California. At 94 years old, Bill Carroll has waited 65 years to show these photographs again. The exhibition will also include images by the man known to have made Marilyn famous, the legendary photographer Bruno Bernard of Bernard of Hollywood™. His many photographs of Norma Jeane to Marilyn Monroe capture the dramatic metamorphosis of this aspiring model into the world’s most provocative legend.

The exhibition opens to the public June 25, 2010 and will end September 18, 2010. The Gallery is located at 179 South Beverly Drive, Beverly Hills.

Open Tues.-Sat.11:00 am-5:00pm or by appt.
