Eve Arnold at Sensus
Went to view this exhibition being held at Sensus in Victoria, London, initially interested to viewing the images that this photographer had taken of Marilyn Monroe. Having a limited idea of what the exhibition held I was pleasantly suprised at the variety and the amazing places and situations the photographer had been in and the photographs were all really beautiful but real. "I don't see anybody as either ordinary or extraordinary," she said in a 1990 BBC interview, "I see them simply as people in front of my lens.” A list of lifetime achievements to her name Eve Arnold was most memorable for her images of Marilyn Monroe on the set of Misfits.
