Found unpublished photographs of Marilyn Monroe.

Staff magazine "Life" found in her archives never published photos of Marilyn Monroe.
As reported by CNN, found photographs, Deputy Editor Downey Walton (Dawnie Walton), dealt with archival images for subsequent digitization. For brief notes made on the negatives, it was possible to establish that the shooting took place in August 1950. Photographer session allegedly took place in Los andzhelesskom Griffith Park, was made by Ed Clark.
According to Walton, the images were intended for the cover of next issue "Life", however, unclear reasons, the editors of this idea rejected (for the first time Marilyn Monroe appeared on the cover of "Life" in 1952).
By the time this photo Monroe was known primarily as a model - a series of occasional appearances in films and the first noticeable role in the film "Asphalt Jungle" has not yet been brought to her popularity as an actress.
Publication of photographs journalists editions paid tribute to Marilyn Monroe, whose 1 Jun., 2009 would have turned 83 years.
