Eve Arnold didn't even consider photography until a boyfriend gave her a Rolleicord when she was 34. But her talent and daring brought her immediate recognition and she was picked up by Magnum Photos only 5 years later. Arnold may be best known for her black and white images of Marilyn Monroe, but she has chronicled figures as diverse as migrant potato workers and heads of state in addition to screen icons during her assignments, which involved everything from politics, social issues, travel, to current events and a little glamour. Guided by her own words, this volume features Arnold's now iconic photographs as well as many never-before published images.
"Wonderfully evocative" - The Guardian
"Her seamless objectivity, moral convictions and technical rigor distinguish her work almost automatically. Looking at her photos, it's apparent that her intent to capture raw, candid and intimate portraits was present irrespective of whether the subject was Elizabeth Taylor or a Mongolian girl lying on the steppe with her horse." - American Magazine
"One of the greatest photographers of the 20th century." - Vogue
