Diane Arbus - Photographer
I searched, and didn't find a thread on her. Nicole Kidman is making a film about her life called Fur. She was a truly gifted photographer.

I have always adored this quote of Arbus'

"Freaks was a thing I photographed a lot. It was one of the first things I photographed and it had a terrific kind of excitement for me. I just used to adore them. I still do adore some of them. I don't quite mean they're my best friends but they made me feel a mixture of shame and awe. There's a quality of legend about freaks. Like a person in a fairy tale who stops you and demands that you answer a riddle. Most people go through life dreading they'll have a traumatic experience. Freaks were born with their trauma. They've already passed their test in life. They're aristocrats."

^^I remember when i read that quote for the first time it made my skin crawl and it still does!

Arbus was one of the most tallented photographers i have seen,her pictures touched me or should i say hit me over the head in a good way.Made me think(not every phot.can make that)and most importantly her photogrpahs stayed with me forever.My teacher once told me:"after you see a photograph of Arbus you never forget it"and i agree and think that was her greatness!
Cant wait for Fur cant wait!Hope we get at least teaser trailer soon!

the photo of the young boy is really endearing and kooky. i want to hug him. i have always loved portraits, particularly b&w. they somewhat cement ppl. in a state or time. it's fascinating,especially when they look a bit spontaneous.

I think that's true. The part that you will never forget her photographs...
Brilliant.

Also never read the quote before...
