"Photograph" is a 1983 single by British hard rock band Def Leppard from their album Pyromania. Singer Joe Elliott often stated before playing the song live that it was written as a tribute to the late actress Marilyn Monroe,but he contradicted himself in a later interview and explained the song is more generally about "something you can't ever get your hands on". When released as a single it reached No. 1 on the Billboard Top Tracks chart and No. 12 on the Pop Singles chart.
