The photos exhibited at The Lotus Lounge – Carlton Hotel during the Cannes Film Festival will include images from when Mr. Bernard first discovered Norma Jean in 1946, to his famous photo of her in 1954 standing over the subway grate in her billowing white skirt, which the New York Museum of Modern Art chose as the symbol of the century for their “Fame After Photography” exhibition and was displayed 60 feet high on the exterior wall of the museum.
