It was in 1960 during the shooting of The Misfits in Reno that Inge Morath met both Arthur Miller and Marilyn Monroe. Inge arrived with Henri Cartier-Bresson to photograph the filming. In his autobiography Timebends Arthur Miller said of Marilyn’s feelings towards Inge;“Marilyn liked her at once, appreciating her considerate kindness and the absence – remarkable in a photographer – of aggression. She doted a little on the pictures Inge Morath had taken of her, sensing real affection in them.”
Inge Morath would later become Arthur Miller’s wife. Of Marilyn she said, “Once she was ready to be photographed she would surpass the expectations of the lends. She had a shimmering quality like an emanation of water, and she moved lyrically.”
