London (ANI): Marilyn Monroe was an enigma, but a series of her pictures in her most intimate moments discovered recently has made the sex symbol less of a mystery. According to the Telegraph, more than 100 such black and white images shot by John Vachon, on assignment for LOOK magazine at the time during the summer of 1953 are disclosed in a new book 'Marilyn: August 1953: The Lost LOOK Photos".
A picture showing Monroe with crutches was taken by a swimming pool in Alberta, Canada, where Monroe was filming 'River of No Return" with Robert Mitchum. In another of the pictures, a comically frightened-looking Monroe is in the clutches of a taxidermy bear.
The book will also feature photos of Monroe and then fiance, baseball legend Joe DiMaggio snuggling and riding a ski lift.

Vachon's images of Monroe were included in the five million photograph- archive donated to the Library of Congress after LOOK folded in 1971.
