Eve Arnold

Marilyn Monroe

Background History

Eve Arnold first took pictures of Marilyn Monroe in the 1950's. Arnold took pictures of Monroe also on the set of her movie "The Misfits." These photos were considered very revealing of Monroe during a very rocky time for her. Arnold had full artistic reign during the four month shoot. During that time she developed a very close relationship with Monroe.


My Opinion

I like the picture above because I think it captures Monroe's personality as well as Arnold's photography skill. I like how the background of what looks like mountains behind her is blurred. Overall I think this is a very good photo.
