Milton H. Greene, 1954, The Archives Store

The Advanced Continuous Tone edition, printed by Black Box Collotype of Chicago, beautifully exhibits their special method of screen-less lithography in these six Milton H. Greene photographs. This collection features Ava Gardner, Judy Garland, Marilyn Monroe, Cary Grant and model Ann Gunning.
In the ACT process, images go directly from a digital source to an advanced flatbed printer, which applies permanent pigments to paper without halftone screens or dots, thus creating an actual continuous tone archival print. An extraordinary fidelity, fullness of tone, color and detail, impressive color saturation and clear line resolution is achieved.
There are no Artist Proofs or Exhibition Prints for this edition.
All printing was done at Black Box Collotype of Chicago, a printing company that spent years in research developing a method of fine continuous tone screen-less lithography.

Milton took this image of Ava Gardner in his New York studio in 1954 while on assignment for Look Magazine. An image from this sitting appeared as the lead for the story, “What is Sex Appeal?”. Milton captured Ava’s fire in a beautiful bright red blouse tied at the waist, matching red lipstick, hooped earrings and large floppy hat that she is holding with both hands. This photograph translates beautifully here in a classic black and white print.
