“It is the photographer, not the camera, that is the instrument”Eve Arnold, 1912 – 2012

Eve Arnold was the first female member of Magnum, the famous photo agency. Known for her wide range, from celebrity portraits to photo journalism, Magnum’s co-founder Robert Capa described her work as falling “between Marlene Dietrich’s legs and the bitter lives of potato pickers”.
