R.I.P Eve arnold.

I was saddened to hear that Eve Arnold passed away this week at the ripe old age of 99.
The image above has been on my wall for many years having come by the print in my early days of printing. It has survived five house moves, one of which was to the USA, and has long been a favourite image. What few people don't know is that the entire roll of film that this image is from has a scratch running all the way through it. A challenge to spot if ever there was one (no Photo Shop back then).
Such timeless and touching images may never more be created thanks to publicists and the like guarding their ten percent..
