Note | Nudity The complete set of Bruno Daya’s editorial of Ilse de Boer for 125 Magazine’s Religious Issue are as exciting as the FTape preview. Andrej Skok’s styling is a stand out. Interesting! On his blog Andrej Skok connects this editorial with Marilyn Monroe’s famous Bert Stern Last Sitting shoot.
I’m privileged to own this book treasure, and admit to not making the connection, probably because I was consumed with the religious references. I saw the red ribbon as a cross.
If you don’t know the history of the orange X-marks, when Stern showed Marilyn the contact sheets, she was so unhappy with her physical looks that she took a marker and defaced all the images that she detested.
They became a Marilyn story in their own right. Of course the orange and red crosses remain connected. Anne
