"Pictures of a fresh, carefree, uninhibited Marilyn flirting with the camera on the beach… A child of nature and a natural wonder."— Der Spiegel, Hamburg, Allemagne

"Art publisher TASCHEN are reissuing Andre de Dienes‘ Marilyn, one of the finest photography books on Monroe, in a compact, two-volume edition with slip-cover. … In the accompanying text, De Dienes’ journal entries for their time together are reproduced and they give a unique insight into the young Monroe. … In 2002, TASCHEN published a deluxe, limited edition box set, including the book, Marilyn, a Kodak film box containing facsimile prints, a booklet featuring magazine layouts, and a complete reproduction of De Dienes’ manuscript. This latest reissue was featured in The Independent last weekend, in an article titled, ‘Norma Jeane as We Never Knew Her’."— EverlastingStar.net
"Forty-nine years after her death, Marilyn Monroe’s legacy is as powerful as ever. Indeed, it’s even seeing a resurgence, with a host of A-listers clamouring to play the woman whose name alone is a byword for retro femininity…However, it’s the memoirs of Andre de Dienes, Marilyn’s first photographer, that aroused the most interest in the Stylist office. Released this month, the book from cool arts publisher TASCHEN is full of unseen photos of the star taken when she was a fledgling model, and Stylist has had an exclusive glimpse. Andre de Dienes, Marilyn is a scrapbook of their time together. It’s packed with candid unposed snaps with hand-scribbled ‘asides’, vividly coloured snaps of Marilyn playing in the surf and stylised black and white prints. Together they tell the story of how the fashion photographer discovered Norma Jeanne during a casting in 1944 and helped turn her into a star, falling in love with her in the process and even asking her to marry him. Most interesting though, are de Dienes’ revelations about Monroe’s psyche… Reading it feels incredibly personal. What at first seems like an old-fashioned love story becomes a tragic tale of a man who loved someone who didn’t quite love him back. A must-read for Marilyn fans."— Stylist, London, Royaume-Uni
"In these early shots by one-time fiancée Andre de Dienes there’s little to give away that 19 year old Norma Jean Dougherty would in a few years would become the world’s most idolized platinum bombshell. Following the deluxe, limited edition boxset Marilyn published back in 2002, TASCHEN this month reissues a compact two-volume hardback version of Dienes photographs and memoirs about the iconic actress…The archive consists of several thousands pictures that capture intimate scenes from an early road trip they took together, including a visit to the mental hospital where her mother was being treated and Marilyn messing around in the surf at Tobey Beach. The last photo he took of the star was at his Los Angeles apartment in 1962 just days before her fatal overdose…Perhaps even more revealing than the photographs are the anecdotes and observations penned by Dienes, back when Marilyn was “just an unknown girl”…From innocent and charming aspiring model to troubled sex symbol, Dienes recounts the transformation of Norma to Marilyn from an intensely personal perspective…We all know the tragic overtones of Marilyn’s story, but what’s equally heart wrenching here is the tale of the doting photographer whose love was ultimately unrequited…"— VintageSeekers.com, London, Royaume-Uni
"Kaum ein Band bietet einen solchen Blick hinter die Fassade der großen Filmikone, wie der von André de Dienes. ... Er zeigt den Menschen Marilyn Monroe, wie ihn nur wenige je zu Gesicht bekamen, liebevoll und natürlich, ohne reißerisch zu wirken oder zu intime Details zu verraten. ... Ein einfühlsames Porträt von Marilyn."— Widescreen, Fürth, Allemagne
"…His entire relationship with the star, including many private moments shared only between the two, is detailed in de Dienes’s secret memoirs, which were discovered when Monroe fans ravaged his home after his death in 1988. Never before published (until the collector’s edition in 2003, the memoirs tell a beautiful story of love and friendship from the point of view of someone who knew Marilyn intimately; describing the transformation from Norma Jean to Marilyn Monroe— the evolution of a sensitive, ambitious girl into a deeply troubled megastar— from an inside perspective, they shed light on a little-known side of Marilyn…The combination of de Dienes’s memoirs and an extensive selection of his Monroe photographs (which numbered in the thousands) makes for an unprecedented, personal exploration into the psychology, history, and iconography of the world’s favourite movie star."— GrownUps.co.nz
"Before there was Marilyn there was Norma Jeane. One day in 1945, fashion photographer Andre de Dienes’s life was changes forever when he met a lovely young aspiring model named Norma Jeane Baker. He instantly fell in love with her innocence and charm and the two were briefly engaged. They took many adventurous road trips together in those early years and de Dienes soon built up a huge portfolio of stunning photographs of the smiling brunette which helped to launch her model career, and a few years later, a film career tat was to make her a legend. His entire relationship with the star, including many private moments shared only between the two, is detailed in de Dienes’s secret memoirs, which were discovered when Monroe fans ravages his home after his death in 1988. The new books tells a beautiful story of love and friendship from the point of view of someone who knew Marilyn intimately; describing the transformation from Norma Jeane to Marilyn Monroe – the evolution of a sensitive, ambitious girl into a deeply troubled megastar – from an inside perspective, they shed light on a little-known side of Marilyn. From their trip to see her mother in a mental hospital to Marilyn’s visit to his home a few days before her death, de Dienes recounts all of the emotional moments they shared."— Social and Personal, Dublin, Irlande
