New York Yankee’s superstar Joe Di Maggio and Marilyn Monroe were married on January 14, 1954.
The newlyweds flew to Japan for their honeymoon on Pan American Airlines where Kashio Aoki, the official steward for precious cargo, shot the only photos of the famous couple aboard that flight, as no press or cameras were allowed onboard.
Aoki kept the photos private for 46 years before deciding to share them with the world and publish the works with re-known art publisher Edward Weston in 2001 in a limited edition of 75 to commemorate the 75th Birthday of Marilyn Monroe.
When the two came off the plane they were greeted by over 250 journalist and paparazzi.
According to DiMaggio, “he had never seen so much excitement, or heard a roar so loud, not even when the Yankees won the World Series”.

Ana Young "The Silence of Trees" @ HARVEY GALLERIES MOSMAN, 3 - 28 April 2020
‘The view from my studio window at Primrose Park lead my eyes directly to a small clump of trees, they watch me silently, quiet sentinels. sounds filter through, fronds swaying, bark creaking, water running towards the bay. Light becomes magician changing volume and space, their trunks fade in and out enveloped in fog, mist, rain. Some mornings they march towards me.
I do not wish to paint the trees literally, rather, the feeling of time standing, delaying holding me while I absorb and look repeatedly at these trees, they intrigue me, everyday becomes a new version of the day before. There is always the possibility of renewal. They wait for me and I wait for them to find a place In my paintings.’
