USA, Chicago, 1962

Eve Arnold began photographing in 1946 while working at a photo-finishing plant in New York City, and then studied photography in 1948 with Alexei Brodovitch at the New School for Social Research in New York. On the basis of her work throughout the last decades of the 20th Century, in 1995 she was made fellow of the Royal Photographic Society and elected Master Photographer - the world's most prestigious photographic honour - by New York's International Center of Photography. She has had twelve books published.

In celebration of Eve Arnold’s work as part of the Magnum at 70 collection, Sedition presents an iconic image of Malcolm X from 1962. The photograph was taken in Chicago, Illinois, USA during Malcolm X’s visit to enterprises owned by Black Muslims.

The work is included as part of the Magnum at 70 partnership between Magnum Photos and Sedition in celebration of 70 years of the world renowned photography collective. Collections of iconic photographic and video works by artists represented by Magnum Photos will be released as digital editions on Sedition as part of an international programme throughout 2017.
