The photo series aptly titled Marilyn by Emily Berl, a photographer born and raised in Washington, DC, and based in Los Angeles, California, is not comprised of old, never-before-seen images of the iconic sex symbol. Instead, it follows the life of some of her biggest fans, Marilyn Monroe impersonators that live life by her credo.

Strange and almost otherworldly since they do seem like clones of the late actress, Marilyn by Emily Berl doesn't concentrate on just any impersonators. It's Nice That reports, "Emily refined her search for her subjects by choosing to photograph only those who considered Marilyn to be a central part of their lives, which definitely adds to the strangeness of the images."
