Milton’s Marilyn (and Mangone) in Provincetown

Around fifty photos of Marilyn by Milton Greene are on display at Gary Marotta Fine Art in Provincetown, Massachusetts until August 10, alongside a series of screenshot from a remarkable home movie shot by teenage fan Peter Mangone as he followed Milton and Marilyn around Manhattan in 1955. “The photos are stunning for their naturalism,” Paul Sullivan writes in the Provincetown Independent. “These are not Warhol’s garish, Factory-produced blow-ups, but are simple photos of Monroe as she was.”
