Marilyn and Milton developed a close friendship throughout their years of collaborating. While the two often completed various projects for high-profile advertising campaigns and editorial appearances, they also both enjoyed experimenting with different props and scenes in the studio.
The Red Sweater series resulted from the two wanting to have fun with the props in Milton’s studio. The result was a series of “shape-shifting” images of Marilyn wearing an oversized red sweater. Here, her innocent, charming, and funny personality radiates through as the consummate actress she always was and will be remembered as.
