Subject: Bert Stern, Monroe photographer, dies in New York

Written By: Philip Eno on 06/29/13 at 11:01 am

Famed US photographer, Bert Stern, best known for his images of Marilyn Monroe in what became known as The Last Sitting, has died at the age of 83.

Film-maker Shannah Laumeister, 43, who said the two were secretly married in 2009, confirmed he died at his home in New York on Wednesday.

Stern photographed Monroe for Vogue magazine, just weeks before she died from a drug overdose in 1962.

Other celebrities he photographed included Audrey Hepburn and Twiggy.

Laumeister said: "He'll be remembered as someone who loved women and loved taking pictures and putting things he felt strongly about in the camera.

"His images will live forever and wow generations to come," she said, adding that the Monroe images "go beyond the photograph and become a work of art".
