Grenfell Tower fire

On Wednesday 14th of June, London had a very somber awakening. A fire in the early morning had engulfed a 24 story tower block in under 30 minutes with the occupants inside.

Photographies intimes de Marilyn Monroe dans ses moments privés prises par Eve Arnold à Chicago, 1955

Eve Arnold a photographié tout le monde de la Reine Elizabeth à Malcolm X et a publié de grands livres sur la Chine, la Russie et l'Amérique. Mais malgré ses réalisations variées, sérieuses et primées, Eve est devenue la plus connue comme étant l'une des chroniqueurs la plus loyale et affectueuse de Marilyn Monroe.

Voici quelques-unes des photographies franches de Marilyn Monroe en attendant un avion à Champaign, Illinois, où elle devait assister aux célébrations du centenaire de la ville de Bement, 1955.
