Marilyn Monroe – Red Dress Sitting (RS-11)

The Essential Marilyn Collection
Milton H. Greene
  • Photographed for Life magazine, this series produced several memorable images. Appropriately entitled the Red Sitting, these photos display the playful eroticism that was apparent in all their work together. Milton did something during this shoot he rarely did, setting up his strobe bank light and adding a 10K tungsten spotlight, which bathed her in a golden yellow glow. 

The January 1957 sitting in that simple red dress would be their last assignment together.Pin_it_button
