Inspiring women

I haven't posted anything in five months and in that time we lost three great inspiring women.
One of the ladies is a woman who with Toni Frissell inspired me to study photography and that is Eve Arnold. She took those intimate photos of Marilyn and went Dubai
and of course that now infamous photograph of Malcom XEve was one of the best photographers Eve's coffee table book All about Eve is must haveAnother great inspring photographer was Lillian Bassman. You can't say much about Lillian other than let her work speak for its self.
Some of it Lillian's photos are like paintings
Marie Colvinthe award winning veteran journalist, who passed away last week in the Syrian city of Homs was one brave woman.Despite losing an eye in Sri Lanka
Marie never stopped reporting from the front line and was more than just inspiring woman and journalist.
