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 "The Last Days of Disco" @ HARVEY GALLERIES, 7 December - 16 December, 2018
Johnny Romeo is an Australian contemporary pop artist. His works infuse the aesthetics of print-based Warholian Pop with a street-art speed and grit, all executed through some strange on-canvas alchemy in acrylic and oil. The works heavily reference recent and current popular culture, unabashedly harvesting politicians, celebrities, pinups, and comic book heroes and villains, as protagonists. Rendered in muted pop hues, like high vibrancy paint applied thinly over stubborn grey concrete, these recognisable personalities often juxtapose witty stenciled wordplay, some letters scratched out to create unlikely double and triple entendres out of previously stale slogans and rehashed platitudes. Through that graphic style Romeo equally engages in, and simultaneously critiques consumer culture and branding in relation to the construction of personal identity. The artist exposes the childishness of our apparent ideals and elucidates what western culture has found to replace its heroes.
Australian, lives and works in Sydney and Los Angeles.
