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.

Zhu Peihong "My Space" @ MOSMAN, Friday 9-29 March, 2018
"'My space' is in such a state: express “the reality I realized”, and reality exist through consciousness, saying, paintings let the invisible become visible, rather than the visible reproduced. When I paint, I lie my work on a table, the process is like drawing a Chinese painting, not an oil painting. Different pigments will wait to dry on the canvas, drawing over and over for a long time until accomplished. The indefinite extension of the painting process blurs the boundary of the beginning and the end of the creation. Which brings a very subtle experience, and result in a quite different appearance compared to other works. During the 8 years, after several changes and advances, I have broken the spatial relationship of painting, and broken through the limitations of two-dimensional canvas. I use ready-made product, pigment, spirited strokes to create a vital space.” - Zhu Peihong
