In 1945 Bill Carroll was the first photographer to shoot the first professional modeling pictures of Marilyn Monroe, then Norma Jeane. The photos were taken on a single day on Malibu beach, for which she was paid $20.00. As an unknown actress, over 40 years would pass before even Bill Carroll in 1987 realized the pictures he took were of the legendary movie star.
For the first time, after 65 years these photos have been released in a limited edition of only 25 signed photographs.
Now 97 years old, Bill Carroll reflects “She was impressive, to say the least. My day at the beach was a rewarding visit with a delightful young woman who was articulate, intelligent and eager to do the very best she could. Her conversation was relative and opinions expressed were those of a person who has something genuine to offer. Norma Jeane was a good model and a friendly person with whom to share a hamburger.”
