From 1953-1957, Milton Greene took some of the most alluring and captivating images ever taken of Marilyn Monroe. They became partners, establishing Marilyn’s own production company, Marilyn Monroe Productions which produced two films, Bus Stop and A Prince and a Showgirl.
The use of a bustier and fishnet stockings first used in the Black Sitting, sparked the design of the costume worn by Marilyn’s character, Cherie in Bus Stop. The Black Sitting along with other series such as the Ballerina Sitting remains some of the most famous photographs ever taken of Marilyn Monroe.
Milton’s work in the fifties and sixties appeared in major national publications including Life, Look, Harper’s Bazaar, Town & Country and Vogue. Milton’s photographs are credited to bringing fashion photography into the realm of fine art.
Milton Greene’s subjects included Frank Sinatra, Grace Kelly, Marlene Dietrich, Sammy Davis Jr., Elizabeth Taylor, Cary Grant, Sophia Loren, Groucho Marx, Audrey Hepburn, Andy Warhol and Judy Garland.

Johnny Romeo "Electric Boogaloo" @ MOSMAN, Friday 8-17 December, 2017
“ELECTRIC BOOGALOO is in many ways my love letter to hip hop and Pop culture. I’ve always admired the intrepid spirit of the early hip-hop pioneers, and the ways they used and reinterpreted the music and dance that surrounded them to create completely new forms of art. I definitely see parallels between the adventurous experimentation of hip-hop in the early 1980s, and my own approach to Pop culture sampling. At the same time, my rediscovery of the works of Pop provocateur Mel Ramos had me immediately drawn back to his kitsch fusion of brand names and pin up girls. The paintings in ELECTRIC BOOGALOO reflect this duality, between the rhythmic pull and street-hardened lyricism of hip-hop, and the boisterous Technicolour energy of Pop.” - Johnny Romeo
