The Marilyn Type
Marilyn Monroe departed this mortal plane 52 years ago.

Runs through Saturday.
The unreleased images come from five photographers of varying professional backgrounds, and at least one set comes from an uncovered, dusty lockbox.
Others were culled from the private letters of Misfits cinematographer Thomas Kaminski.
Origins and rarity aside, the prints depict an effulgent Golden Age star who’d still stop traffic in the here and now.
Check out the online gallery if you’re not convinced.
Be still, thy heart.
