Eve Arnold once described photography as "a
combination of high adventure and low comedy, of meticulous planning and
absolute change, of infinite patience and quick reflexes."
She should know, having been a star photographer
for Life magazine during its heyday, as well as the first woman to join
the ranks of the elite photojournalists' cooperative Magnum, in 1955.
Starting Saturday, Culver City's David Gallery will host "All About
Eve," a retrospective featuring 96 images from Arnold's career,
including intimate portraits of Marilyn Monroe, pictured in the Nevada
desert, taken over two months the photographer spent on the set of John
Ford's 1961 film "The Misfits." Sat.-May 24, www.davidgallery.net
