Marilyn Monroe photographed by Ed Feingersh, 1955.
For Marilyn, being photographed wasn’t an inconvenience, as it had become a way of life. Back in her hotel room, dressed for the opening night of Cat on a Hot Tin Roof, she ‘put on a performance’ for Feingersh, splashing Chanel No. 5 on herself.  At other times, however, the strain of ‘being Marilyn’ was overwhelming. At a costume fitting for her guest appearance at a circus, Marilyn ‘burst into tears of frustration’, Robert Stein recalled. ‘Eddie’s camera got it all, showing her rising tension against a visual jangle of wire hangers in the background.’
