Opening on 1st July, ‘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, the three-month exhibition will open at Newlands House Gallery.
Over 90 black-and-white and colour photographs will 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 will be exhibited for the first time in 70 years.
