Kashio Aoki was a steward on the Pan American Tokyo route. He has since enjoyed worldwide fame for his candid, evocative and luminous photographs of Marilyn Monroe and her baseball-legend husband, Joe Dimaggio, on their Japanese honeymoon in 1954.
Edward Weston (1926-2008) was a celebrated art publisher, who built a virtually unparalleled collection of glamour photography over five decades. Weston's archive collection features some of the most iconic images from the Golden Era of Hollywood, most famously of Marilyn Monroe, and has toured throughout the United States.
