Bert Stern

Bert Stern (1929-2013) was born in Brooklyn, New York.  In his youth, he worked as a messenger and clerk in the mailroom of Look Magazine where his photography talents were discovered.  Recognized as a trailblazer in advertising photography, Stern experimented with unconventional techniques, including videotape, screen-printing, photo-offset combinations and computerized printouts, working on advertising campaigns for brands such as Canon, Dupont, Pepsi-Cola, US Steel, and Volkswagen. His work appeared in VOGUE magazine, and he was soon recognized as the prototype fashion ‘photographer as media star’. Stern’s best-known body of work is a collection of over 2,500 photographs taken of Marilyn Monroe over a three-day period six weeks before her death, known as "The Last Sitting.”

Amanda Mullen co-curates this show with The Betsy's principal curator, Lesley Goldwasser. Amanda is a Miami Beach-based fashion entrepreneur and blogger with knowledge of and appreciation for contemporary art.
