I said to Norma Jeane: “Sit on the highway, it represents Life! You have a long way to go!”

It all started here, in 1945. Norma Jeane was 19; just started modeling. This was her first professional assignment. I was madly in love with her, and wanted to take many, many pictures of her.

Why I wanted that, it’s a long story, yet to tell.

While photographing this, looking at the tiny little white stars on her red skirt, unconsciously, I began prognosticating to her, that, she will become very famous! That those little stars meant great fame! Yet, I had no idea why I said that! It just happened!

- André de Dienes, photographer & friend
