Jun 28 2013 - 8:00am

Bert Stern, the New York-born photographer best remembered for his iconic Marilyn Monroe shoot published in The Last Sitting, has passed away at 83 [1].

Among his other famed subjects, Elizabeth Taylor and Audrey Hepburn sat for Bert's lens. However, despite working with Hollywood's top leading ladies, the photographer voiced a preference [2] for shooting models, such as Twiggy.

"Models more than actresses," he once said. "What makes a great model is her need, her desire. And it's exciting to photograph desire." Whoever the subject, Bert has given us beautiful images to remember him by.
