Marilyn Monroe / Photos by Eve Arnold

Marilyn Monroe
by Eve Arnold

Eve Arnold, Hon. FRPS, OBE (née Cohen; April 21, 1912 – January 4, 2012) was an American photojournalist. She joined Magnum Photos agency in 1951, and became a full member in 1957. Arnold died in London on January 4, 2012, aged 99.

Arnold's images of Marilyn Monroe on the set of the actress's last film, The Misfits (1961) were iconic, but she had taken many photos of Monroe from 1951 onwards. Her previously unseen photos of Monroe were shown at an Halcyon Gallery exhibition in London during May 2005. She also photographed Queen Elizabeth II, Malcolm X, and Joan Crawford, and traveled around the world, photographing in China, Russia, South Africa and Afghanistan.
