In 1946, the famous photographer Andre de Dienes was shooting portraits of Marilyn Monroe, at the age of 20, on Malibu Beach in Los Angeles. These black and white portraits show her natural, hair in the wind, enjoying the sea air. First angelic, charming, then laughing or sleeping, all these expressions are caused by the photographer when he asked her to react spontaneously to words like love, joy, torment or death.
