MONROE'S LAST NUDES LOHAN REDUX
Looking at the New York Magazine Nude Lohan prints, as an artist who's taken many reference photoshoots, I felt the pictures only told half the story. I needed to see how they compared to the original Marilyn shots and which Marilyn photos were used for reference. Just seeing the Lohan photos didn't give me any perspective.
I painstakingly (it was fun) went through the original Bert Stern / Monroe "the last sitting" shot-by-shot and figured out (to my best guess) which pictures he referenced for the Lohan shoot. (see below)
How Lohan was able to take poses and expressions that are fun and alive in 1962 and make them look so dull and contrived in 2008 is amazing. Probably the one time when a little champagne tumble off the sobriety wagon would have been a good career move. . .
