Kate by Bert Stern

I've posted photos of Kate Moss before but I wanted to share this photo I stumbled upon of Kate by photographer Bert Stern. Bert Stern is most widely known for his body of work, The Last Sitting. The Last Sitting is a collection of over 2000 photographs taken in a three day span of Marilyn Monroe 6 weeks before her untimely death. The images he created then have become such an integrated part of our visual history. Now 50 years later Mr. Stern is in his early 80's and still producing beautiful work. This photo of Kate definitely has that same signature quality of the portraits he took back in the 60's.

A well-deserved standing ovation for Mr. Stern. His photographs are spectacularly great.
