OneOf Drops NFT Collection Of Iconic Marylin Monroe Photos

OneOf NFT Platform Drop New Collection of Marylin Monroe's Iconic Photos

Collectors Can Purchase The Redemption Token With Access To Physical Print With A Digital Certificate Of Authenticity Verified On The Blockchain

Sept 22, 2022 — Green Web3 platform OneOf has announced a new NFT collection featuring three iconic photographs of Marilyn Monroe, taken by legendary photographer Frank Worth. The drop is a continuation of OneOf’s partnership with Globe Entertainment and Media (Globe), custodians of the world’s most famous archives including Globe Photo Agency, Movie Star News and the Frank Worth Archive. Over the past month this partnership has brought famous photographs of Jimi Hendrix (Jill Gibson) and David Bowie (taken by Jeffrey Mayer) to Web3 for the first time.  

The Legends of Film: Blonde Bombshell features breathtaking shots of Hollywood-darling Marilyn Monroe taken by photographer Frank Worth— friend and confidant to many of Hollywood’s elite. Worth’s personal relationships and loyalty to the stars he candidly shot kept him from publishing his images, and as a result, only a few of his extraordinary photographs were seen during his lifetime. 

Worth made a modest living as a freelance photographer in Hollywood during the 1940s and 50s, when most photographers were constrained by the powerful studio system. However, Worth used his personal relationships to sidestep these restrictions, permitting him to capture the greatest collection of intimate images and the glamor of the icons and the era—including one of the most legendary actresses of all time—Marylin Monroe.

This collection features three photographs: Marilyn Monroe in Desk Chair (1955), Marilyn Monroe in Bathing Suit (1949), and Marilyn Monroe on Set of The Seven Year Itch (1955).  When these images were discovered after Worth’s death, Christie’s of London called them the most significant find in the past 50 years.

There are 149 editions of a single Redemption Token NFT, and buyers are able to select which of the three photographs they’d like at the time of redemption.  The pre-sale launches today and the main sale starts at 3PM eastern on September 29. The collection will be minted on Polygon.

The Marilyn Monroe by Frank Worth prints will be a OneOf exclusive 18×13 inches. Three lucky buyers will be given the opportunity to upgrade their print size to 20×24 inches (normally retails at $1,495) as well as receive a 1-Year video streaming service subscription.

The Redemption Token NFT serves as a trading token for the physical prints of Marylin Monre and the accompanying non-fungible certificate of authenticity (NFCOA). This redemption token can be used to resell this NFT on the OneOf Marketplace.  Once the holder of the Redemption Token NFT decides to redeem their token for a print of Marylin Monre, they will have the ability to choose one of three print options and their token will be burned and replaced with the NFCOA, confirming their ownership of the physical print, and the print will be sent to their mailing address.

OneOf kicked off their Globe partnership with Legends of Rock: Summer of Love at the Monterey Pop Festival. The collection celebrated Jill Gibson’s icon Monterey Pop Festival photographs of rock icons including Jimi Hendrix, The Who and Ravi Shankar. For the first time ever, Jill published her famous Jimi Hendrix Rolling Stone cover shot from the festival.  

The Globe NFT collection continued with The Legends of Rock: David Bowie—Stardust in Santa Monica collection, featuring 130 limited prints of a photograph of David Bowie, taken by photographer Jeffrey Mayer during Bowie’s Ziggy Stardust Tour stop at the Santa Monica Civic Auditorium on October 20, 1972—the day David Bowie would change music forever. It was captured during a rare moment, when David Bowie played harmonica on “Jean Genie.”
