About the Artist
Marilyn was born in Cleveland, Ohio, USA, in 1925. Following studies at the University of Wisconsin, Marilyn’s photographic career was launched in New York in 1948 when she was asked to photograph Albert Einstein by friends making a film about him. In the car on the way to Einstein’s home in New Jersey, she was given a camera and a quick lesson in how to use it.
Her internationally published work spans from 1948-1980 and covers a broad scope of subjects and periods of modern history. She has photographed prominent historical figures, international fashion, refugees and tribal peoples. Stafford worked with several famous brands for her fashion portraits, including Biba and Chanel. She helped to illustrate the fashion of London and Paris in the 1950s and 1970s.
Marilyn now lives on the south coast of England.
