I first came across the work of Eve Arnold over 10 years ago whilst immersed in books in the library at uni, her sensitive approach and moment in time she managed to capture moved me then and still does now.
"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."
Eve Arnold joined Magnum Photos in 1951 and became a full Member in 1957
From Philadelphia to New York, China, Russia, South Africa and Afghanistan the legendary photographer Eve Arnold born 12/04/1912 passed away peacefully in London at the age of 99, 04/01/12. Thank you Eve for sharing your gift and inspiration.
