Eve Arnold's People
by Brigitte Lardinois
Publisher's Description
Eve Arnold is one of the great photographers of the modern era. Born in 1912, she was a trailblazer both for women wishing to enter the world of photojournalism and for her distinctive work, which is imbued with a sensitive connectivity to its human subjects and to the world around them.

This new collection features her exceptional photographs of people, both famous and unknown, captured in formal and informal settings. They include not only engaging and intriguing photographs of such celebrities as Marlene Dietrich, Marilyn Monroe, Clark Gable, Paul Newman, Jacqueline Kennedy, John Huston, Joan Crawford, and Elizabeth Taylor - many of whom became close friends - but also everyday people at work and play around the world.

In addition to Arnold's superb individual portraits are a number of Photo Stories: extended visual essays based on some of her key assignments, including such subjects as Malcolm X and the Black Muslims, her seminal work In China, and more. Each one features commentaries that provide insights into her creative process.

With a preface and introduction by two iconic screen actresses who are also her lifelong friends, this book places Eve Arnold at the heart of the canon of photographic greats.
