Is it possible to contact Miss Arnold in appreciation of a Marilyn photo I may have a possibility of acquiring? Could she sign a photo if sent to her? Love her work, such an inspiration?

Amy – 2006-02-01 A question: do you know when exactly she was born, please?
Bart Versieck – 2005-12-08 Hello all; I am pleased to report that the great lady is decidedly alive; I think also the lack of D.O.B. is deliberate. It is, in many ways, irrelevant. I am a student writing a paper on Eve Arnold and her special gift for capturing people (in her photographs!); I would be interested in whether anyone visiting this site had any particular insights as to what it is in her approach that allows this communication.As a human being, (apart from as an aspiring photographer) I must say I am in awe of this very special woman. I am a little jealous of those who have met her- but am sure I would be struck dumb if I did!
