The end of everything

While browsing in Paradise Books, I came across a photograph of Marilyn Monroe, which I am sure, I had never seen. Andre de Dienes is the photographer and the photos where taken in either 1952 or 1953. The text stated that Monroe had called de Dienes late one night unable to sleep and in the grip of a dark depression. He picked her up and they took these shots in the dingy back alleys of the Hollywood hills. The cars headlights light the shots. Monroe told de Dienes to title the shots The end of everything. They seem like stills from a dark little fairytale.
