- “A blissful book, a portrait of a vanished era.”
- “It’s as if we’ve walked in on something private. The story of these images of Marilyn Monroe and the man who took them may be as revealing as the pictures themselves.”

A Splash of Marilyn
On her final film, Marilyn Monroe gave a young photographer his big break, and this is their story
Marilyn & Me is an intimate story of a legend before her fall and a young photographer on his way up. Schiller’s extraordinary photographs and vibrant storytelling take us back to that time with tact, humor, and compassion. With more than 100 images, including rare outtakes from the set of Marilyn’s last film, the result is a real and unexpected portrait that captures the star in the midst of her final months.
