Photographer Elliott Erwitt, still active at 93, has shared his memories of Marilyn (and much more) in an interview with Phil Mistry for the PetaPixel website.
“PM: You have photographed celebrities like Marlene Dietrich, Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis, Marilyn Monroe, Fidel Castro, Che Guevara, and I forget how many more. But who was your favorite celebrity to photograph?
EE: I don’t know. I’ll think about that.
PM: What attracted you to photographing Marilyn Monroe?
EE: It’s just an opportunity I had. I met her on a movie set, several movie sets. It would be difficult to take a bad picture of Marilyn Monroe. She is a real star. She’s sensitive in spite of her popularity. She was neurotic. Did I say sensitive?
PM: Yes, you did.”
