The Archives

The Archives, LLC was originally formed in the mid-1990s 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. He realized that every photographer has an individual footprint that is found throughout the body of work.  Milton's can best be described as elegance, intimacy, grace, authenticity, style, and humor.

The Archives offers archival quality printing in addition to restoration and digital imaging. With more than two decades of experience, our in-house, high-quality print lab is available for any photographer or artist’s needs with shipping and professional packaging to any global location. The Archives specifically sells Fine Art Limited Editions, featuring the photography of Milton H. Greene.
