Lawrence Schiller: A Splash of Marilyn
BERLIN  •  Galerie Melilli Mancinetti  •  Ongoing
Berlin’s newest gallery for contemporary photography and art, opened with a solo show by New York photographer Lawrence Schiller. Entitled A Splash of Marilyn, the exhibition grants a photograph look behind the scenes and during the making of the last movie with Marilyn Monroe, Something’s Got to Give.

Just months before her death, the actress gave the young photographer Schiller his big break, and this is his story: “You’re already famous; now you’re going to make me famous,” the photographer said to Marilyn Monroe as they discussed the photos he was about to take of her. “Don’t be so cocky,” Marilyn replied, “photographers can be easily replaced.” The year was 1962, and the 25-year-old Schiller was on assignment for Paris Match magazine.
