Bert Stern has created some of the most memorable photographs of female celebrities ever taken. He is perhaps best known for his photographs of Marilyn Monroe. Photographed just six weeks before her death, these images exhibit a dreamy sensuality that lingers in the memory. Stern's other iconic images include the infamous sunglasses movie poster for Lolita. Shaped by his background as an accomplished commercial photographer, Stern's is a uniquely exuberant and colorful view of the world. His subjects range from cinema legends like Elizabeth Taylor and Audrey Hepburn to pop sensation Madonna. Stern has directed a number of films and commercials, most notable of which is Jazz on a Summer's Day, a documentary of the 1958 Newport Jazz Festival.
