Photographer: Eve Arnold













Eve Arnold
From Wikipedia

Eve Arnold (born April 21, 1912) is an American photojournalist and was the first female member of the Magnum Photos agency (in 1951, becoming a full member in 1957)

Arnold is best known for her benevolent, intimate images of actress Marilyn Monroe on the set of Monroe's last (1961) film, The Misfits, but she took many photos of Monroe from 1951 onwards. An exhibition of previously unseen photos of Monroe was displayed at the Halcyon Gallery in London in May 2005. Marilyn trusted Arnold more than any other photographer, a relationship that is well-documented. Due to Arnold's sympathetic approach towards her subjects and protective nature of them afterwards, she is able to capture a closeness that is not easy for most others to capture.
