Unique photographs of actress Marilyn Monroe, the legendary sex icon of the 50s, were on display at Amsterdam’s Eduard Planting Gallery. The portraits are from two of her most famous photographers, Douglas Kirkland and Milton Greene.
Greene was born in New York and lived from 1922 to 1985. He is ranked among the top celebrity photographers of his time. He took pictures for fashion magazines such as Harper’s Bazaar, Town & Country, Look, and Vogue, as well as the prestigious American magazine, Life.
Kirkland, on the other hand, is a top photographer from Toronto. His works falls within the lines of fashion, portraiture, and photojournalism. Like Greene, he has worked for many reputable magazines for the entire length of his career, which spanned over 50 years.
The Eduard Planting Gallery called the exhibit “An Evening with Marilyn Monroe”. The photographs on display are among the thousands of images that the Greene and Kirkland took during their artist-subject relationship with Monroe from 1954 to 1961. The exhibit will run from January 9 until March 5, 2016.
