Eve Arnold, 1912-2012

Sad that my first blog post of 2012 should be about the passing of another great photographer, but I just thought I’d share this Magnum in Motion audio slideshow interview with Eve Arnold in conversation with John Tusa, from 2009.

Considering Eve Arnold’s standing as a Magnum photographer and the extraordinary archive of photographs she leaves behind, it’s a shame that there seems to be very little in terms of interview/retrospective multimedia material available about her online – apart from those pieces that talk about her photographs of Marilyn Monroe. Even this piece is quite narrow in scope, although it includes segments on Joan Crawford, Malcolm X and Margaret Thatcher. But it’s wonderful to hear Eve Arnold’s voice. May she rest in peace.
