Magnum Photos Photographer Profile

She began photographing in 1946, while working at a photo-finishing plant in New York City, and then studied photography in 1948 with Alexei Brodovitch at the New School for Social Research in New York. Arnold first became associated with Magnum Photos in 1951, and became a full member in 1957. She was based in the US during the 1950s but went to England in 1962 to put her son through school; except for a six-year interval when she worked in the US and China, she lived in the UK for the rest of her life. Her time in China led to her first major solo exhibition at the Brooklyn Museum in 1980, where she showed the resulting images. In the same year, she received the National Book Award for In China and the Lifetime Achievement Award from the American Society of Magazine Photographers. In later years she received many other honours and awards. Eve passed away in January of 2012.

Olivia Arthur Photographs a Side of Women the West Rarely Sees

Lighty's bedroom tent. Last year, we struck up a partnership with Magnum – arguably the world's most famous photo agency – that allowed us to run some of their most amazing pictures at our website. Now, the series of interviews with their member-photographers, all of whom have to undergo a gruelling induction process, returns for 2014. Olivia Arthur’s groundbreaking work on young women in Saudi Arabia became the 2012 book, Jeddah Diary. This project, along with her wider project, Middle Distance, examines women’s lives along the fault lines between Europe and Asia, and in societies often deemed closed to the West. I spoke to her about the difficulties of working with women in segregated societies, and whether there’s an over-arching theme to her work. VICE: So, first off – how did you go from being an Oxford Maths student to being a photographer? After I finished university I went to India.
