Eve Arnold's People
With an Introduction by Isabella Rossellini, With a Preface by Anjelica Huston
A Thames & Hudson book
Eve Arnold (b. 1912 in Philadelphia) is one of the great photographers of the modern era.
This new collection features her exceptional photographs of people, both famous and unknown, captured in formal and informal settings. In addition to Arnold’s superb individual portraits of Monroe, Dietrich, Gable, Crawford, and more, there are a number of Photo Stories: visual essays made on assignment, including Malcolm X and the Black Muslims; her seminal work In China; and more.
The work is organized into three key periods: 1948-60, her early career, and becoming the first woman member of Magnum; 1961-70, when she moved to the UK and began working with color film; 1971-97, with assignments in the Middle East, Afghanistan, and beyond.
