I just wrote artist into the box and  these are just a smidgeon of what’s available.What is really cool is that once you click on a picture, there are small thumbnail pics under “related images” and you can see more pictures  from the roll of film that had been shot. Here are some amazing extras of Marilyn Munroe, (click on the related images to see)
