When Diane Arbus died in 1971, she was a significant influence for serious photographers. Diane Arbus: An Aperture Monograph is a timeless masterpiece with editions in five languages. Exactly 40 years later, this tome remains the foundation of her international reputation. And the passing of time has done nothing to diminish the riveting impact of these pictures or the controversy they inspire. Arbus’ photographs penetrate the psyche with all the force of a personal encounter and, in doing so, transform the way we see the world and the people in it.
Edited by Marvin Israel and Doon Arbus. Paperback. 182 pages.
