Eve Arnold

Very sad to hear of the death of Eve Arnold yesterday. A photographer with Magnum, she had the rare ability to capture humanity and vulnerability, even beneath the glamour of Hollywood stars. Her photographs are poignant and beautiful, whatever the subject. I thought I'd post a kind of small retrospective in her memory as one of the greatest photographers whose work means a great deal to me.
