diane arbus catalogue: in the beginning
Accompanying catalogue for the diane arbus catalogue: in the beginning exhibition at the Hayward Gallery.
diane arbus: in the beginning showcases over 100 of the artist’s early photographs, more than half of which are published here for the first time. The book provides a crucial, in-depth presentation of the artist’s genesis, showing Arbus as she developed her evocative and often haunting imagery. The photographs featured in this handsome volume reveal an artist defining her style, honing her subject matter, and in full possession of the many gifts for which she is now recognised the world over.
Jeff L. Rosenheim is curator in charge, Photographs Department, The Metropolitan Museum of Art.
