Photojournalist Eve Arnold dies at 99

Eve Arnold, a globe-trotting photojournalist who captured iconic images of Marilyn Monroe, has died at the age of 99.

Magnum photo agency spokesperson Fiona Rogers says Arnold died peacefully on Wednesday in a London nursing home.

Born in Philadelphia in 1912 to Russian immigrant parents, Arnold worked for publications including Life magazine and joined the Magnum collective in the 1950s.

Her subjects ranged from bartenders and cowboys to Jacqueline Kennedy and Malcolm X.

Her most famous shots include portraits of Monroe taken throughout the actress’s career and collected in “Marilyn Monroe: An Appreciation”.

Arnold settled in London in the 1960s, working for the Sunday Times.
