About Eve Arnold

Eve Arnold began her photographic pursuits while working in a New York City photo-finishing plant in 1946, and soon after began studying with Alexei Brodovitch, a noted art director at Harper's Bazaar. Capturing the most glamorous and famous faces of the last century, including Malcolm X, Marilyn Monroe, and Jackie Kennedy, Arnold served as the official photographer on 40 movie sets. In equal measure, Arnold focused her lens on the lives of ordinary people around the world, traveling from China to South Africa.

American, 1912-2012
