Limited Runs Presents “Marilyn: The Lost Photographs of a Hollywood Star @ SUMO Gallery Tribeca NYC 7/22/2014


Marilyn MonroeIt was a celebration of newly ‘found’ pictures-some posed, some candid-of Marilyn Monroe at the SUMO Gallery this night in Tribeca. This Limited Runs exhibit has already hit San Francisco and wound its way into NYC for a three night stand. As I reported here, this showing is from photographs unearthed (and in the case of one photographer the photos actually were found after an earthquake hit Southern California!) from the collections of five men, Thomas “Doc” Kaminski, Allan “Whitey” Snyder, Milton Greene, Lani Carlson and Mischa Pelz.

Beautiful big framed pieces hung both on the street level floor of the skinny but well appointed SUMO and in their lower level (that was a little too crowded with the little too skinny model see-and-be-scene set). But truly one understands quickly, surrounded by so much Maryilyn Monroe, why the bubbly blonde with the quick to flicker upper lip and bouncy ‘tude as well as bod is still one of our biggest Hollywood icons.

Whether in posed color shots or those big black and white on set stolen moments Kaminksi managed to shoot stills of on the desert set of The Misfits in 1961 (my favorite among the many), there is no mistaking the unique star quality Monroe had, that frankly, in my humble opinion puts all our modern day brightest and best of the movie/model/TV reality celeb set to shame.
