Inspiration Photography

Eve Arnold

As a woman and an artist, Eve Arnold was an inspiration. There’s a nice collection of her work available on the Guardian website, including images of Marilyn Monroe which are her most well-known.

The collection misses out my favourite photo of hers though – it’s this one of the queen, caught off guard. I love the naturalness of the pose, the genuinely happy-looking smile and the use of negative space…
