Monroe & Milton
If you peruse all the iconic Marylin Monroe images, you’ll come across a photographer named Milton Greene. Milton shot Marilyn at her most natural, probably because the two struck up a close friendship, and eventually a production company, called Marilyn Monroe Productions. This is a photo taken for one of the films (Bus Stop,1956) of the short-lived company, which eventually ended their friendship as well.
Dive into the history of Marilyn Monroe photos by Milton Greene on eBay.

Insta-Peep-O-Gram: Mario Kroes
German-born and LA-based photographer Mario Kroes excels in the kind of high-contrast, black and white portraiture that Saint Laurent designer (and highly proficient photographer) Hedi Slimane tends to prefer. Kroes’ Instagram feed offers a monochromatic glimpse into the life of a photographer. A must-follow, in our opinion. Mario can be found on Instagram by clicking here.

French photographer Boris Ovini got his start in the trade from an early age, taking pictures of student demonstrations in Paris at the ripe old age of 16. From there, he went on to earn his degree from the Lycee d’art Auguste Renoir. Since then, his work has been featured in Citizen K, Plastique, and Vanity Fair.
