Photographer Eve Arnold Dies

Magnum photographer Eve Arnold, recognized for her stories about the ordinary lives of the poor and downtrodden all over the world as well as for her unvarnished portraiture of Marilyn Monroe and other celebrities, has died in London. She was 99.

Arnold took up photography in the late 1940s, and first studied under Harper’s Bazaar art director Alexei Brodovitch at the New School for Social Research. From the start, she defied boundaries, documenting a fashion show in Harlem–then a segregated ghetto–for a school assignment. That led to a long-term documentary project about the Black Power movement.
