Eve Arnold – To Know About Women

‘To Know About Women: The Photography of Eve Arnold’ is the UK’s first major retrospective of the pioneering 20th century photographer in ten years. Exploring themes of social injustice, civil rights, religion, power, fame, sexuality and birth.

Over 90 black-and-white and colour photographs are be on display, including Eve Arnold’s career-defining documentary of the fashion shows held in Harlem in the 1950s. Rarely seen photos from this body of work are exhibited for the first time in 70 years.

I have been poor and I wanted to document poverty; I had lost a child and I was obsessed with birth; I was interested in politics and I wanted to know how it affected our lives; I am a woman and I wanted to know about women.

– Eve Arnold

Our next show at Newlands House is a celebration of Eve Arnold’s work and we are honoured to be the first gallery in the UK to show such an extensive collection of her photos in over a decade. This exhibition follows in the footsteps of the gallery’s tribute to other great 20th century artists and photographers, including Helmut Newton and Lee Miller’.
