Eve Arnold, one of the first women to join Magnum Photography Agency has died at the age of 99. She passed away in a London nursing home.
She is best known for her candid photos of celebrities, especially Marilyn Monroe. She used a photojournalistic technique when everyone else was staging formal portraits. This gave a fresh, spontaneous look to her work. Photographs from the set of The Misfits are some of her best work, capturing the backstage tension between Monroe and her then husband Arthur Miller.
Eve Arnold has left us with a visual document of the mid 20th century that will be referred to throughout history.
