Marilyn photographed by Bert Stern, 1962.
The first time I saw this photo I found that I was physically unable to look away from it for what felt, in that moment, like an eternity. It was as if I had, for the very first time in my life, seen and understood beauty.
This is the most beautiful photograph I have ever seen.
