She passed away at a London nursing home on Wednesday (04Jan12).

Arnold was born in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania in 1912 and became a regular contributor to Life magazine.

Some of her most memorable subjects included Elizabeth Taylor, Joan Crawford, Jacqueline Kennedy, Margaret Thatcher, Malcolm X, and Queen Elizabeth II, but she was most recognised for her longtime artistic relationship with Marilyn Monroe - she snapped candid shots of the beauty on the set of The Misfits.

Arnold moved to England during the 1960s with her son Frank and just last year (10) she received the Lifetime Achievement honour at the Sony World Photography Awards in Cannes, France.
