Eve Arnold "In America" series

Picture This: Eve Arnold

Eve Arnold shot some of the most memorable images of America’s most iconic figures—from Marilyn Monroe to Malcolm X.

Despite her recent death at age 99, the late photographer’s legacy will remain for years to come.

She was the first woman to become a full member of the Magnum photographers’ cooperative.

In addition to that landmark distinction, New Yorker writer Suzanne Shaheen writes that Arnold’s “In America” photo series stands among the lenswoman’s most moving batch of images.

Peep some of the photos from that series below.

And fellow Magnum members like Eli Reed explained what the significance of her vision:

“To look at her photographs was to be there inside the moment as she experienced it,” Reed said. “I learned over time that Eve was a quiet warrior for truth via the photographic image.”
