These early Marilyn Monroe images remind me of my cub reporter days. I covered a Miss Nude World Pagent at a Florida nudist camp.
In the news environment, I was seldom exposed to nude photography, films, or videos. Although one of my first assignments happened to be of young ladies baring all.
Marilyn Monroe didn’t agree to this shoot easily, she knew that during a lifestyle and morality of the era, posing for any naked images could ruin her career. She eventually signed the release for the pictures: “Mona Monroe.”
