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”.

Isaac Petersen "Here and Now" @ HARVEY GALLERIES MOSMAN, 16 -27 October 2020
"My work is a culmination of stories from my life, my home, and places I have been. Since I can remember the ocean and rugged landscape of where I grew up in New Zealand has inspired me to paint landscapes and the sea. These paintings kick started my career as an artist in my early twenties.
Since travel being a part of my adult life, my paintings expanded to capture the ‘story” of places abroad in the last few years. I becan painting my wife, Erika, as a figure to add depth and connection to a beautiful surrounding, often water.
I hope to leave the viewer with a good feeling. Whether they can relate to my painting with a past experience, or by a fantasy of somewhere they would like to go, my painting should take them there."
