From 25 February to 4 June 2023 CAMERA – Italian Center for Photography in Turin – presents ‘Eve Arnold. L’opera 1950-1980’, curated by Monica Poggi and realized in collaboration with Magnum Photos. An exhibition dedicated to a great photographer of the 20th century: Eve Arnold (Philadelphia, 1912 – London, 2012) who knew how to tell the world with a passionate personal approach. She was the first woman, along with Inge Morath, to join the prestigious Magnum Photos agency in 1951. The exhibition displays some 170 images, many of which have never before been exhibited, and presents the photographer’s complete oeuvre from her earliest black-and-white shots of 1950s New York to her last color works, taken at the age of eighty-five at the turn of the century.

The selected works address themes and issues such as racism in the United States, women’s empowerment, and the interaction between different cultures of the world. Her fame is linked to his numerous shoots on the sets of unforgettable films, where she portrayed the great stars of the period, from Marlene Dietrich to Marilyn Monroe, from Joan Crawford to Orson Welles.

This book also represent our first collaboration with a new publisher, and dear friend, to whom we extend our warmest wishes for this new, amazing venture!
