I looked through a few photo threads, but I can't find a comprehensive discussion about this.

In her book Marilyn Monroe, Eve Arnold writes that among the first photo ops she had with Marilyn were the playground and leopard suit sittings at Long Island, while Marilyn was staying with the Rostens. Arnold dates these to "late summer" of 1952. I think it's fairly well-established, though, that they were actually taken in 1955. As far as I know, Marilyn didn't even know the Rostens in 1952. In the Eve Arnold thread here, I read that these sittings would have taken place in September 1955, because that's when Marilyn was staying with the Rostens on Long Island.

Well, how do we explain the date of the Arnold photos from the Bement trip, then? To my knowledge, that took place a month earlier - 6 Aug 1955. In other words, Bement should have been their first collaboration. Yet Arnold writes that Marilyn phoned her practically in the middle of the night and asked her to come along to Bement. Why would she have done that if thay had never worked together before? Did Eve and Marilyn meet on Long Island on several occasions that year, perhaps?
