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.

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.
