Three Magnum women: Eve Arnold, Inge Morath and Cristina García Rodero

Exhibition - Photography

In this exhibition, the Oscar Niemeyer International Cultural Centre in Avilés pays tribute to three pioneering women from the world of photography, presenting a selection of their work as photojournalists.

Eve Arnold and Inge Morath were the first two women to become full members of the prestigious Magnum agency. And Cristina García Rodero, is the agency’s only Spanish member. This distinctive accolade (just 99 photographers are full members of the agency, and only 11 of them are women) shows how important their work as photojournalists is, work that has also made it possible for them to exhibit in renowned museums and galleries, and to be among the most influential professionals in the history of photography.

There are a total of 60 works on display in the exhibition. On the one hand, there is a collection of works by Eve Arnold and Inge Morath, which includes, portraits of famous people such as Marilyn Monroe, Malcolm X, Paul Newman, Margaret Thatcher and Yves St. Laurent. And on the other, a selection of photographs by García Rodero, who will also be participating in the official opening of the exhibition.
