Marilyn Monroe And That Old Black Magic!

In the 1990’s, No Limits was London’s most famous Digital Photographic, Large Format Bureaux. One of our bespoke services, provided to London’s finest photographers and renowned artists was a high-resolution scanning service.

One day, one of my clients brought in a couple of old 10″ x 8″ photographs to be scanned. This image was one of them. The subject is no secret. The identity of the photographer may take a little more investigation.

I think you will agree, it is beautifully shot and very atmospheric. I wanted to share it with you for three reasons. Firstly, Marilyn Monroe photographs are some of the most coveted items on the planet. Secondly, I have never seen it in a book or as a Poster. Thirdly, Black and White photographs of Marilyn as good as this are rare.

If you have any comments on this photograph or if you know of the provenance, I would be delighted to hear from you.

My name is Steve Howard. You have been reading the digital circus.
