A World Without Eve

The photographer Eve Arnold has died aged 99. The war photographer Robert Capa said that her work: "falls metaphorically between Marlene Dietrich's legs and the bitter lives of migratory potato pickers."

Eve had known Marilyn Monroe for ten years by the time she photographed her on the set of The Misfits.
Arnold photographed Marlene Dietrich here at the Colombia Road recording studios in 1952.
Arnold notes: "It was a wet and cold November night and work could only begin at midnight, at the advice of Marlene's astrologer.
Arnold took this shot of a bargirl in a brothel in the red light district of Havana, Cuba in 1954.
A story shot for Queen focussed on the lives of four girls sharing an apartment.
