Lists with This Book. Diane Arbus forces us to look at people we’d rather not look at if given the choice, and to think monographh ‘differentness’ we’d rather not think about in polite society. Yet like a car wreck and resulting gaper’s block we can’t look xrbus. These people, mobograph yes they are people, are today’s lepers, shunned and banished from the mainstream – or worse.
Her photographs, straight-on and unblinking and in un-flattering light, expose and magnify the flaws, awkwar Disturbing, haunting, affecting Her photographs, straight-on and unblinking and in un-flattering light, expose and magnify the flaws, awkwardness and differentness of her subjects. Yet we identify with these unfortunates who for the most part have been ciane with, and have to bear, a disability or more politically correct, a challenge.
We have our own flaws, awkwardness and differentness; we’re just better at hiding them. But for the grace of God Her subjects are often unusual and many times nude.
The intensity she captures in people’s eyes is so powerful. You can’t help but want to delve deeper, better understand their stories. From giants to little people, teen lovers to elderly nudists, the balance, curiosity, emotion, power that she depicts makes her one of the greats. I do have a feeling for the print but I don’t have a holy feeling Her subjects are often unusual and many times nude.
I do have a feeling for diabe print but I don’t have a holy feeling for it. I really think what it is, is what it’s about.
I mean it has to be of something. And what it’s of is always more remarkable than what it is. Nov 30, Vanessa rated it really liked it. This is the 40th anniversary edition of a collection of Arbus’s photos chosen after her death by her daughter Roon and her close friend Marvin Israel.
The introduction is by Arbus herself, a pieced-together essay chosen from various sources including an interview with Studs Terkel and audio from a class she taught. The cobbled together origins explain why the text is interesting but fragmentary, yet it suits its subject-you can imagine Diane Arbus jumping from point to point in conversation as h This is the 40th anniversary edition of a collection of Arbus’s photos chosen after her death by her daughter Roon and her close friend Marvin Israel.
The cobbled together origins explain why the text is interesting but fragmentary, yet it suits its subject-you can imagine Diane Arbus jumping from point to point in conversation as her enthusiasm moved her minute to minute. While Arbus was probably best known for photographing people on the fringes of polite society carnies, drag queens, nudistsmy favorite picture is probably the one of a widow in her bedroom with a subtle yet monogeaph heartbroken face surrounded by Buddhist art.
There is so much going on in this picture that you could stare at it for days trying to digest everything in the frame and yet the execution appears effortless and light as a feather. I don’t know how she did it, but when you look at her pictures you really are staring into its subject in an exhilheratingly intimate way. Among other things it makes me wonder, if Diane Arbus were to magically appear and ask to take my picture, would Monograpb say yes?
Some of the pictures were taken as late asthe year Diane Arbus committed suicide at age Reading the introduction, she was someone so curious and engaged with the world that it’s hard to understand how she came to that end. She’s a huge influence on modern photography, including the work of Cindy Sherman and Mary Ellen Mark for starters. This book monogeaph beautifully put together with fantastic reproductions of her pictures.
Other than the text by Arbus herself at the beginning, the pictures and their titles do all the talking. It’s just you and Diane Arbus, with neither guides nor filters. I have the original hardcover edition of this book, which I bought in Diane Arbus came to Atlanta a year or so before her death and gave a talk at Nexus a photographers’ collective, if I remember correctly.
Over the years, I have returned to this book time and again, always surprised by the images. The book itself is exceptionally well-made, with beautiful reproductions of the photographs. I saw some of the photographs from this book at an exhibit two years ago, and they and this book have I have the original hardcover edition of this book, which I bought in Konograph saw some of the photographs from this book at an exhibit two years ago, and they and this book have stood the test of time.

Diane Arbus: Monograph
I have no doubt that Diane Arbus was a tremendously talented photographer. But this collection, and comparable collections by other influential photographers, seem to always have a few gems and then a bunch of filler that just look like simple snapshots.
I guess you had to be there or something.
Jun 16, Megan ReadingRover rated it it was amazing Shelves: Diane Arbus photography is amazing. The subjects are all extremely unique regular just doing mundane things. They are all beautiful yet eerie in arnus way. Feb 18, Amy Nicole rated it it was ok Shelves: Diane Arbus takes pictures ddiane very intriguing subjects, and about five of those pictures actually stand out in this collection. When she gets one of those stand out shots, it’s really exceptional.
There are some pictures that are striking and jarring and breathtaking. The rest are just not my cup of tea. Technically, the pictures siane over exposed and some are riddled with marks from film development. Others are not composed well and could have been excluded from the collection. I feel like a bo Diane Mohograph takes pictures of very intriguing subjects, and about five of those pictures actually monogrxph out in this collection.
I feel like a body of work like this should display the gems and not try to catalogue every picture taken. Arbus feels more like a one hit wonder than an artist with a solid collection, and this book unfortunately highlights that. Oct 24, brian tanabe rated it really liked it. I’m not quite knowledgeable on photography, but Arbus’ work has always haunted me.
This is a great monograph of her work. My 3 favorite pictures are: May 31, Vika Vicky Victoria rated it it was amazing. This is my favorite photographer. Check out her work, and you will understand why.

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 bo “Freaks was a thing I photographed a lot. Freaks were born with their trauma.
They’ve already passed their test in life. Turning the pages of this book of selected photographs can sometimes be quite daunting.
The images reflect those that are beyond the fringe. These are the people that even those on the outskirts of society won’t accept.
Arbus, in mongoraph opinion, uncovered a new world of people whose lives, whose very existences, are a complete enigma. A counterbalance to modern civilization. Those that eat with forks and plates. Those who have funerals and weddings.
