Today an amazing thing is taking place: over 75,000 images are set to be auctioned by Profiles in History for an anonymous collector who purchased the images from Polish investors.
The images belong to one of the most renowned photographers, Milton Greene!
Milton photographed numerous celebrities including Marilyn Monroe, Marlene Dietrich, Cary Grant, Frank Sinatra, Grace Kelly, Sophia Loren, Audrey Hepburn, Andy Warhol and many more. However, it was his unique friendship and numerous photographs of Marilyn Monroe for which he is mostly remembered.
Milton & Marilyn met in 1952 while on assignment for Look Magazine and they quickly became close friends. Eventually they created their own film production company, producing the films Bus Stop & The Prince and the Showgirl. Marilyn even lived with the Greene’s at their Connecticut home. During this time Milton was able to capture many beautiful images of Marilyn showcasing her moods. They were close friends for almost 10 years, and Milton photographed countless sittings of Marilyn, one of his most memorable was the “Black Sitting”.
Mostly Kodak Ektachrome slides, the images are being offered with copyright, something of a rarity. The sale includes more than 3,700 shots of Monroe; many never have been seen publicly.
