Self-taught American commercial photographer Bert Stern (1929-2013) is best known for The Last Sitting, a collection of 2,500 photographs taken for Vogue of Marilyn Monroe in 1962. The photo shoot took place at the Bel Air Hotel for a three-day period just six weeks before her death. The book The Last Sitting was published in 1982 and again in 2000.
