FRANCES & BERNARD
We knew from the start that a bold black and white photograph from the period would be just right for the jacket of Frances & Bernard, the story of a profound friendship and bitter-sweet romance between two writers in 1950s America. Eve Arnold’s beautiful shot of a couple with New York in the background had just the right intensity and sweep. The story is told through their letters to one another and the type on the jacket was generated from an old typewriter.
Eve Arnold’s work can be seen alongside that of other celebrated photographers in the current exhibition Another London at Tate Britain. She was one of the great photojournalists of the 20th Century who joined the prestigious Magnum Photos agency in 1951 and died only this year a few months short of her 100th birthday.
