Diane Arbus

Né en 1923 - United States

BIOGRAPHIE

Diane Arbus was born in 1923 in New York City, where she died in 1971. She learns to take photos with her husband who was a photographer himself, but her early photographs date from the early 1960s at the time when they were already separated.

She takes photography course and met Richard Avedon and Lisette Model. She determines her own style, adopting the 6 x 6 format and working exclusively in black and white. Diane Arbus has a particular approach in the lineage of Walker Evans, taking documentary urban photographs.

In her work, Diane Arbus investigates the society around her. One of her first series, "American Rites, Manners and Customs", consisting of portraits of strangers, constitutes a study on the rituals and habits American people.

Diane Arbus spent her life in New York, taking portraits of strangers. Fascinated by outsiders, she photographed mostly marginal people. Diane Arbus photographed during her whole life topics that society doesn't want to see, and that it rejects. Among these are the mentally handicapped, the transsexuals, the dwarves, twins, transvestites, and in general people considered to be "freaks". Diane Arbus wanted to show people the things that society attempts to hide in order to make them accepted. Her work was her obsession, and she would always ry to go on step further in her search for the unconventional in order to show it in all its reality.

Diane Arbus had hepatitis and committed suicide on July 26, 1971, leaving behind a veritable contemporary anthropology which has marked the universe of photography.
