The Essential Marilyn Monroe: 50 Sessions by Milton H. Greene

Iconic Images in partnership with The Archives and ACC Editions, proudly announce the publication of THE ESSENTIAL MARILYN MONROE: 50 Sessions by Milton H. Greene

No other photographer so captured and polished the image of Marilyn Monroe than Milton H. Greene. Photographer, best friend, confidant and image-maker, Greene photographed Marilyn Monroe during an astonishing 50 sessions; on location, in the studio, at home and in private, even recording her wedding to Arthur Miller.

Now, Greene’s son, Joshua, presents The Essential Marilyn Monroe by Milton H. Greene. A book that has been more than twenty years in the making, Joshua has painstakingly restored his father’s immense archive and has personally selected 280 images, including 160 that have never been published to product this magnificent book.

Alluring, poignant vulnerable, playful, The Essential Marilyn Monroe is a unique photographic monograph that eclipses all that have come before.

Two editions of the book will be available. The standard trade edition is available for pre-order here. In addition, there will be an deluxe, limited edition available that will be packaged in a clam-shell presentation case with a numbered and estate stamped print, exclusively produced for this one-of-a-kind publication. There will be two prints to choose from; “Marilyn and the Gold Cup” or “Marilyn in a Negligee.” To learn more about the limited edition or to pre-order, please visit
