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.

And while the majority of my work draws from the natural world, I’ve never explored the floral side before.
In researching for this show, my appreciation for flowers grew as I quickly found that they are not just pretty things to have in the background, but rather at the forefront of adaptation. They have a level of power that I never recognised before, appealing to us in each stage of Maslow’s Hierarchy of Needs.
From the flowers of the Fertile Crescent, which fed and clothed us, to beautifying our nests, attracting a mate, or for respect, and even inspiring us in art. Flowers have inserted themselves into every aspect of our lives, thus insuring their survival.
So in this world where animals are increasingly put on endangered lists, flowers are a section of a chain that if broken, will cause chaos. And if the past is a guide for the future, the continuation of humans on this planet is going to be inextricably linked to the survival of flowers.
Tasmanian artist Amanda Parer’s edgy and ephemeral paintings explore the natural world and its fragility, with startlingly beautiful creatures enlarged and frozen against their chosen habitat. When viewing one of … read more →
