Diane Arbus: Revelations


Arbus (1923-71) said that her approach to photography was like gathering a butterfly collection, in that she aimed to depict objectively the distinctiveness of her unusual subjects. Known best for her pictures of human aberrance, she is again the subject of a new wave of popular appreciation. Revelations accompanies a major retrospective and is the most comprehensive study of her life and work yet to appear. An outstanding accomplishment in a photography book, it's a title that in its density and design successfully encapsulates the work of an eclectic artist who at times defies interpretation. Articulate textual matter weaves together thorough coverage of Arbus's images.
