"Eve Arnold died - a great American Photojournalist"


Philadelphia, US
          

In all the hoopla surrounding the D4 intro, we missed paying attention that one of the greats of photojournalism died; Eve Arnold.

I suspect, despite knowing her work, few have ever heard of Arnold. The work I speak of, for example, included her iconic series of Marilyn Monroe on the set of "The Misfits," Monroe's last film (She actually photographed Monroe for many years and we've all seen those photos.), her series of Malcolm X, an older Joan Crawford at the twilight of her career, Jacqueline Kennedy in the White House, her China series and Queen Elizabeth.

Her finest work, however, in my opinion, was of ordinary people working and living, and of politicians making their mark. She has a series of Margaret Thatcher, unlike any other photographer's.

She was born in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, but for most of her adult life called England her home.

She began shooting in the 1940's studying under Harper's Bazaar art director Alexey Brodovitch at the New School for Social Research in Manhattan, and by 1951 she began working for the Magnum Photos Agency on a freelance basis. She became a full member of the group in 1957. Magnum is the agency founded by Henri Cartier-Bresson and Robert Capa, considered to be the greatest reportage photographers of their time.

Her work and her doggedness at avoiding "women's assignments" helped open up the business to women.

We really lost a great photographer this past week.

Thank you, Ned, for posting this. I'm sure I have seen a number of her images, especially Margaret Thatcher (what can I say, good bad or indifferent, PM Thatcher was a force to be reckoned with).

I will have to research more of her work.

You're welcome.

Anthony, you might want to start your research about Arnold at the below link to some of her work at Magnum Photos. I know you've seen some of them.
