Rarely do we get the chance to see images of the photographer at work. Le Journal de la Photographie recently added a series of photographs taken by Edward Pfizenmaier in 1956 of Cecil Beaton during his photo shoot with Marilyn Monroe at the Hotel Ambassador in NYC. It’s a great behind-the-scene look at how photographers worked well before the digital age. No computers, no strobes – just the photographer and his subject.
