MILTON GREENE

Milton Greene is renowned for his contribution to high-fashion photography during the 1940s and 50s. In many ways he was a pioneer of interpreting fashion for mass visual consumption, Greene's work was frequently featured in the likes of Harper's Bazaar and Vogue.

In the 1950s and 60s he moved on to photographing celebrities, capturing the greatest personalities of the time, including; Elizabeth Taylor, Frank Sinatra, Audrey Hepburn, Grace kelly, Sammy Davis Jr. and his dear friend Marilyn Monroe.
