Product Description

Review

"Her seamless objectivity, moral convictions and technical rigor distinguish her work almost automatically. Looking at her photos, it's apparent that her intent to capture raw, candid and intimate portraits was present irrespective of whether the subject was Elizabeth Taylor or a Mongolian girl lying on the steppe with her horse." American Magazine --American Magazine

All About Eve: A Photography AND History Book! 22 Feb. 2012
By Paul Hoover - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
Lots of people recognize Eve Arnold's photography because they've seen it before, as wall art, posters or the likes. I enjoy this book because it pays equal attention to Arnold's less known works as it does her more famous shots. But it's also a 2-for-1: a history book as much as it is a collection of beautiful black and white photos. It's a sort of play-by-play of working class, minority culture in around the world (from child laborers in Long Island to Great Britain; China to Cuba) from the early 50's to late 70's. Two decades of captivating photography.

Each photo has a caption to relate the story being told. Some of the photos come with proofs of Arnold's original captions. I really like the photos that recount social movements; like the telltale shots of the Non-Violence movement in the South. But despite being so informative, there's a good amount of humor in here too.

This is my second in my collection of black and white photography books. Initially, I bought it after reading an introduction to Eve by Elliott Erwitt in an article online. I also own Elliott Erwitt's Personal Best which seems to follow a similar style as Arnold, although the latter takes on a more narrative approach. If you're already a fan of Arnold, this book is a must-have. And if you're a fan of one of the photog masters - Erwitt, Andre Kertesz, Jane Brown, etc.--I recommend you this book.

Beautiful book and reference source 22 Feb. 2012
By Dorothy Morris - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
Eve Arnold was a pioneering female photojournalist who was well-known for being a member of the prestigious Magnum Photos. She excelled at the challenge of becoming invisible to her subjects and was able to capture her subject's intimate moments. I first became intrigued by her work when I noticed that her style was similar to the early Life Magazine photo essays that followed each subject throughout their day with series of photos that give a portrait of their life.

This is a great book to commemorate her life with a comprehensive collection of Eve Arnold's work and a well-written in-depth informative bio/intro that is about nine pages long (and has been a great resource for my art history paper). Images range from her travels in America, Asia, and Europe and includes photos of famous personalities such as Malcolm X, Arthur Miller, Liz Taylor, Marilyn Monroe, etc. as well as social topics and daily life. Both black-and-white photos and color are featured in the book, and at times, they also show pics of the back of each photograph with handwritten notes/captions. It's the closest thing to a primary resource/actual photograph.

One of my favorite aspects of this book is that each photograph featured has captions right under them. It makes it easier for further research of individual photographs and events. Highly recommended!

Creating Bold and Illuminating Images 5 Jun. 2012
By Grady Harp - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
Known to many by her images rather than by her name, Eve Arnold, who died this year at age 99, was a visionary, a gifted photographic artist and photojournalist, being the first woman to be hired by Magnum Photos, that impressive organization responsible for many of the world's most memorable photographic images that capture our time an dour history. teNeues Press has published this magnificent monograph, with a superb introduction by Liz Jobey who details the important steps in Eve Arnold's life, career and artistic impact.

Eve Arnold, who fell in love with photography after a boyfriend gave her a camera and who came to be regarded as a grande dame of postwar photojournalism for her bold, revealing images of subjects as diverse as Marilyn Monroe and migratory potato pickers, was a leading light in what is considered the golden age of news photography, when magazines like Life and Look commanded attention with big, arresting pictures supplied by adventurous photographers like Henri Cartier-Bresson, Gordon Parks, Robert Capa and Margaret Bourke-White. From the New York Times the following facts are delivered: `Acclaimed for capturing celebrities in intimate moments after winning their trust, Ms. Arnold developed a particular rapport with Marilyn Monroe, the subject of a book of Arnold photographs. But other pictures, just as memorable, were of the unfamous. Among the more than 750,000 Ms. Arnold made was one taken in 1963 showing an English curate mowing a lawn, his robes tied up to keep them clear of the blades. She took pictures in a South African shantytown, a Havana brothel and a Moscow psychiatric hospital. She documented a Long Island hamlet, Miller Place, and the first minutes of a baby's life. She was an official photographer on 40 movie sets. After waiting 10 years for a visa, she visited China twice in 1979. Traveling 40,000 miles, she photographed Communist officials, Mongolian horsemen and oil drillers. The trip was chronicled in an exhibit at the Brooklyn Museum and a book, one of dozens she wrote and photographed. In 1985, Mary Blume of The International Herald Tribune wrote, "In a distinguished career, Eve Arnold has photographed Everyone with a capital `E' and also everyone." Ms. Arnold covered politics, including the Republican National Convention in 1952 and Senator Joseph R. McCarthy's investigation of suspected Communist subversion in 1954. But she earned wider note for her celebrity photos, starting in 1952 with Marlene Dietrich and her legendary legs, immortalized in a striking Arnold picture.'

This handsome volume is as elegantly designed as the images it contains. Below each photograph is an explanation of the subject, the time of the image....and unspoken social comment - the most tasteful information sharing to be seen in books on famous photographers. Eve Arnold offered us so much to learn about ourselves, our world, the highs and the lows of society, the wealth and the poverty, the politically saavy and the disenfranchised. Her work is monumentally important: her images become indelible on the viewer's brain. This is not only a sophisticated book of images by a genius, it is also a book that will cause the viewer to pause on every page to absorb the visual messages of Eve Arnold. Grady Harp, June 12
