    Product Description

    Monroe / DiMaggio Honeymoon,1954

    This delightfully candid and effervescent black and white photo of Marilyn on her honeymoon in Tokyo is signed and editioned '28/75' in ink. It measures 9-3/4  x 7-3/4 inches (24.8  x 19.7cm and prominently features the Aoki/Weston Collection and Marilyn's 75th Birthday Release Edition stamps verso. Marilyn is relaxed, happy and in good spirits, despite the fact she is clearly nursing a broken thumb.

    Kasio 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.

    'With Marilyn, I never fall out of love.' -Edward Weston
