  • Marilyn Monroe's First Photo Shoot

    This 1946 image taken by photographer Joseph Jasgur and released by Julien's Auctions, shows Norma Jean Dougherty, who eventually changed her name to Marilyn Monroe. A bankruptcy judge in Florida ruled earlier this week that Jasgur's photos, negatives and image copyrights taken of Monroe will be sold in December by Julien's Auctions to settle the debts of the photographer.

    Norma Jean Dougherty eventually changed her name to Marilyn Monroe. "These are probably the most significant images of Marilyn that are available because they're so early, from the first part of her career, and it's rare to have images like these where you're selling the rights, too," said Darren Julien, chief of Julien's Auctions.

    "It's very rare to see something where you can buy a copyrighted image of (Monroe), especially of her first photo shoot," Darren Julien, chief of Julien's Auctions told the Associated Press.

    "It's really hard to put a value on something like this, because it's rare and not just for the collector," Darren Julien, chief of Julien's Auctions told the Associated Press.
