Magnificent Women Monday
DIANE ARBUS
American photographer Diane Arbus was a pioneer in the humanizing portraits of those of the margins of society. Shown above are images selected from her first book of photographs聽Diane Arbus, published by Aperture in 1972 with design and editing by her long-time friend and companion聽Marvin Israel and her eldest daughter聽Doon Arbus聽to accompany an exhibition of her at Museum of Modern Art, New York, a year after her death by suicide at age 49.聽 聽
Diane Arbus鈥檚 career began in commercial photography, although she quickly realized her talents were better suited to taking photos rather than working as a creative director on her husband Allan鈥檚 shoots. She worked to normalize marginalized groups and demonstrate the importance of representation by photographing carnival workers, strippers, nudists, drag queens as well as mothers, couples, and middle-class families. These unflinchingly empathetic photos depict subjects in familiar settings, often taken in their homes, on their streets, or within their workplaces.聽
New York Times journalist and author of Diane Arbus: Portrait of a Photographer Arthur Lubow wrote that she had a fascination with people who were 鈥渧isibly creating their own identities... and by those who were trapped in a uniform that no longer provided any security or comfort.鈥 She is considered among the most influential artists of the last century and is even credited with inspiring the twin characters in The Shining with the first image above. Although her life tragically ended before her accomplishments were acknowledged widely, her work has since been featured in 28 solo exhibitions and is permanently held in collections around the world.聽
Some interesting associations: her brother Howard Nemerov聽was twice U.S. Poet Laureate from 1963 to 1964 and again from 1988 to 1990; her husband, photographer and actor Allan Arbus, is popularly known for his role as Dr. Sidney Freedman on the television show M*A*S*H, and their youngest daughter Amy Arbus is also a noted photographer and educator.聽聽
