1912 - 2012, USA
Eve Arnold was born to Russian immigrant parents. She began photographing in 1946 while working at a photo-finishing plant in New York City, and then studied photography in 1948 with Alexey Brodovitch at the New School for Social Research in New York, USA. Arnold first became associated with Magnum Photos in 1951 and became a full member in 1957. Except for a six-year interval when she worked in the US and China, she lived in the United Kingdom. Her time in China led to her first major solo exhibition at the Brooklyn Museum, USA, in 1980, where she showed the resulting images.
