The Secrets of Diane Arbus.

There is not much to say about Diane Arbus that hasnt be said already. One of the most controversial and most brilliant photographers of the 20th century, New Yorker Diane Arbus has contributed a completely unique view to the art of taking pictures. Unlike most people at her time, much like today, she did not care about photographing conventional beauty and fashion, which she resented even when she shot it for a job at the beginnings and before she could finally devote herself to what she really wanted to shoot. A world deviant, marginal, considered ugly to most but to her magically surreal. Even though it has been said that giving a camera to Diane Arbus is like putting a live grenade in the hands of a child, it is impossible to imagine a pair of hands better suited for handing a camera.
