She asked Eve to take some photo's while she was getting interviewed. When the journalist arrived, Maril n answered the door in a black negligee and invited her in. While she fumbled for her pen and paper, Maril n asked if she would mind if she brushed her hair? "No of course not" was the journalist's repl . Maril n then proceeded to brush her pubic hair. The interview onl lasted five minutes. Eve and Maril n's relationship lasted 10 ears, until Maril n's death. She befriended man of her subject's and was highl regarded in her field. Her photographs had a naturlistic form as opposed to the stiffness of a studio shot ou often see.

A self professed workaholic and a genuis behind the lens. Ever one was equal to her and it showed. She was awarded an O.B.E. in 2003, and in 2010 a life time achievment for her work from Son World Photograph . Sadl missed but never forgotten. In the Golden Age of black and white photograph , she was the last one standing until last week. For a blue light coffee table recommendation, I would recommend, Maril n Monroe, an appreciation .
