Eve Arnold 1912 – 2012

< inspo home

Eve Arnold, one of the 20th century’s foremost photographers, has passed away at age 99. She photographed Marilyn Monroe extensively over a 10 year period, including photpgraphs on the set of The Misfits (1961). Her work was mostly people related but they went far beyond the boundary of celebrity; taking in everything from American migratory potato pickers and black civil rights protesters, to newborn babies, Afghan nomads and the poverty-stricken of South Africa and the Far East. Eve will be remembered as one of the pioneer in the field of photojournalism.
