Eve Arnold (1912-2012) (seen in this photograph by Robert Penn) was a student of Alexey Brodovitch and attracted the attention of Henri Cartier-Bresson. She was the first woman invited to legendary photo cooperative, Magnum Photos.
Eve Arnold: a lifetime of inspiration. Her images weren't of the extraordinary or the ordinary:"I see them simply as people in front of my lens."
Eve Arnold, "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."
