A retrospective of the late, acclaimed photographer Eve Arnold’s portraits of women is on show through Dec. 8, 2019 in Italy (info here). Called All About Women, it’s drawn from Magnum Photos, the organization she was associated with from the 1950s.
Arnold, born in Philadelphia to Russian immigrant parents, began photographing in 1946, while working at a photo-finishing plant in New York City, and then studied in 1948 with Alexei Brodovitch at the New School for Social Research in New York.
Arnold was based in the US during the 1950s but went to England in 1962 and 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. She died in 2012. She was the recipient of numerous, prestigious awards, including the National Book Award for her In China works.
