RIP Eve Arnold



One of my very favourite photographers Eve Arnold, passed away this week at the grand old age of 99. I've picked out my favourite images as a mini tribute to her.

She has taken some of the most beautiful photos of Marilyn Monroe, amazing images of 1950's Harlem and intimate behind the scenes images. She is an inspiration to women photographers, fighting adversity and sexism throughout her career.

My thoughts are with her family.

  5. Thanks for posting this. I recently realized just how ignorant woman my age and younger are of all of these great female artists and writers. It's as important now as ever, in the year 2012 the majority of professional photographers are still men!
