Behind the Veil
July 22, 2013
Eve Arnold documented Afghanistan, Egypt, the United Arab Emirates, and other countries in the region in vibrant color from 1969 to ’71 in both still photographs and film. Today's gallery features some highlights from that body of work -- a seminal visual exploration of the lives of Middle Eastern women that possesses the intimacy and poignancy that made Arnold one of her generation's greatest image makers.
