Eve Arnold (1912-2012) began photographing in 1946, while working at a photo-finishing plant in New York City, and then studied photography in 1948 with Alexei Brodovitch at the New School for Social Research in New York. She first became associated with Magnum Photos in 1951 and became a full member in 1957. She was based in the US during the 1950s but went to England in 1962 to put her son through school; except for a six-year interval when she worked in the US and China, she lived in the UK for the rest of her life. Eve Arnold’s iconic images document the second half of the twentieth century with compassion for her subjects and a strong sense of social justice. Motivated by her insatiable curiosity, Arnold sought to capture the story behind the story, photograph the person behind the persona. Actors, Civil rights activists and politicians all got the same treatment behind her lens. “If a photographer cares about the people before the lens and is compassionate, much is given. It is the photographer, not the camera, that is the instrument”. This print is beautifully mounted and framed in a black wood frame. Outside frame dimensions are 63.5 x 53.5 x 3.5 cm. Please allow 2-3 weeks for shipping.
