Leading Lens Closes: Eve Arnold

Legend in Photojournalism Passes at 99

Last week just shy of her 100th birthday Eve Arnold, a highly noted photojournalist, passed. One of Magnum Photos first women members, Arnold's work regularly appeared in Time and Life magazines and she was often the source of the stories' inspiration. Arnold was curious about people, and while some say her inspiration was found in the extremes- in the rich and famous or the poor anonymous it was not true. Perhaps disparities offered a spark of interest or fed flames of a narrative to be explored, but to Arnold it was humanity she was interested in- in all people and their underlying equity.

Her contribution to photography will live on through her work.
