"Milton H. Greene: Portraits of an Era"
2001-11-30 until 2002-01-25
Photographers' Gallery
London, , UK

The American photographer Milton H. Greene (1922-1985) initially became known for his award-winning assignments for Life and Look magazines, and with his work for Vogue and Harper's Bazaar he swiftly went on to earn himself international acclaim.

Along with Irving Penn, Richard Avedon and Cecil Beaton, Greene helped to turn fashion photography into an art form. However, it was his photographs of Hollywood's greatest icons of the 1950s, from Marilyn Monroe to Elizabeth Taylor and Frank Sinatra, which placed him as one of the most important portrait photographers of the twentieth-century.

Greene's portraits evoke a nostalgia for Hollywood's Golden Years, a time when American culture was dominated by its unifying reverence for a favourite set of celebrities. Greene magically preserves the iconic status of these individuals, whilst savouring the grace of the personalities which lay beyond the myth.

Images by Milton H. Greene are available to purchase, from 550 ex. VAT in limited editions of 500.
