Beautiful Pics of Sharon Tate Photographed by Milton H. Greene in 1966

Born 1922 in Los Angeles, California, American photographer Milton H. Greene initially established himself in high fashion photography in the 1940s and 1950s. His fashion shots appeared in Harper's Bazaar and Vogue.

Greene then turned to portraits of celebrities. He photographed many high-profile personalities in the 1950s and 1960s, including Elizabeth Taylor, Frank Sinatra, Audrey Hepburn, Grace Kelly, Ava Gardner, Sammy Davis, Jr., Catherine Deneuve, Marlene Dietrich, and Judy Garland.

Greene was best known for his photo shoots with Marilyn Monroe in Bus Stop (1956) and The Prince and the Showgirl (1957). The two also collaborated on some 53 photo sessions, some of which became well known, including “The Black Sitting”.

Greene's photograph for one such sitting in 1954 featuring Monroe in a ballet tutu was chosen by Time Life as one of the three most popular images of the 20th century.

Greene died of lymphoma at a Los Angeles hospital in 1985 at the age of 63.

These beautiful pics are part of his work that Greene took portraits of Sharon Tate in 1966.
