About The Archives

Background
The Archives, LLC was originally formed in the mid-1990’s by Joshua Greene, the son of legendary 20th Century celebrity and fashion photographer, Milton H. Greene, as a way for Joshua to protect and restore Milton’s photographic legacy as well as to provide curating services for the 300,000 images in his father’s collection. Along the way, Joshua became an expert in estate curation, developing techniques for selecting the most important images from a graphic, historical and financial perspective. His evaluation process determines which images will get the best traction in popularity and financial return. Joshua spent years researching ways to restore and preserve his father’s photographs as well as cataloging and promoting Milton’s vast body of work all over the world. As a result, The Archives, LLC has been at the forefront of the estate curating, digital imaging and the large format printing revolution in Fine Art Photography.
