Three Magnum Women: Eve Arnold, Inge Morath and Cristina García Rodero is coming to the Luis Seoane Foundation with a selection of sixty images by three of the most prominent women photographers of all time. In 1951 American photographer Eve Arnold became the first woman to enter the Magnum agency, which had been founded only four years earlier by fellow photographers Robert Capa, David Seymour, Henri Cartier-Bresson, George Rodger, Bill Vandivert, Maria Eisner and Rita Vandivert. After her, Austrian-American Inge Morath became a member in 1955, and Cristina García Rodero was the first Spanish photographer to ever join the celebrated international agency in 2005.
Curated by Rosa Olivares, publisher and editor of contemporary photography magazine Exit, Imagen & Cultura, Three Magnum Women features some of the most renowned pictures by Eve Arnold and Inge Morath, and a selection of the work of Cristina García Rodero.
The exhibition’s curator wanted to highlight the role of these three women as trailblazers in a field that has been and remains male-dominated even today, and to showcase their own personal approaches to the themes in their pictures and how they saw the world around them.
Three Magnum Women: Eve Arnold, Inge Morath and Cristina García Rodero is organised by Centro Niemeyer in collaboration with the Magnum Photos agency and its spanish representative Agencia Contacto part of Europa Press agency, with additional support from Instituto Asturiano de la Mujer, Fundación EDP, Ariexca and Universidad de Oviedo, Diputación de Valencia and Ayuntamiento de A Coruña.
