More than 3,700 unpublished images of the legendary Marilyn Monroe from photographer Milton H. Greene's estate will be auctioned by Profiles in History on July 27. The images will be sold with copyright.
A top fashion and celebrity photographer during the 1950s and '60s, Greene created indelible images that graced more than 100 covers for Life and Look as well as Glamour, Harper's Bazaar, Town & Country and Vogue.
He first shot Monroe in 1953 for Look magazine. The two not only became great friends, but they also formed a production company that resulted in 1956's "Bus Stop" and 1957's "The Prince and the Showgirl."
Greene photographed Monroe in 52 sessions over a four-year period.
The auction will also feature 75,000 original camera negatives and transparencies including unpublished images of Steve McQueen, Kim Novak, Susan Sarandon, Barbra Streisand, Elizabeth Taylor, Jane Fonda, Audrey Hepburn and Cary Grant.
