A COLLECTION of images taken at Marilyn Monroes first photo shoot have been sold at auction for $352,000 in Beverly Hills, California. Taken by Joseph Jasgur in 1946, when Monroe was named Norma Jeane Dougherty, the photos came with negatives and the right to sell and distribute them. In September, a judge ruled they should be auctioned to settle Jasgurs debts. The Icons and Idols auction, held last Thursday and Friday, also saw a Lady Gaga dress sell for $31,250. Other lots included a 1969 caricature John Lennon drew of himself and Yoko Ono that went for $90,00. According to the official catalogue, Jasgurs images of a 19-year-old Norma Jeane mark the beginning of her career and offer a rare glimpse of her before she was Marilyn. These early photographs introduce a contradictory &multifaceted personality, which is now known to be characteristic of Marilyn Monroe. BBC
