‘Einstein was smiling at me!’ Photographer Marilyn Stafford, 96, on celebrities, slums – and breakfast with Edith Piaf

Marilyn Stafford’s career was hardly unsuccessful. The pioneering photographer quietly documented much of the 20th century – slums, celebrities, war zones, world leaders, everything. But she has never been celebrated like she is today.

Marilyn Stafford: the photographer who captured Edith Piaf and Albert Einstein

Marilyn Stafford’s life reads like a join-the-dots of 20th century history – one that has taken her from 1930s Dust Bowl America, via postwar New York, 1950s Paris and Swinging Sixties London, to the West Sussex coast where she lives today, not far from her daughter, Lina. In between, she made forays to capture on camera the Algerian War of Independence, postcolonial India and the Arab-Israeli conflict.
