“A spellbinding portrait” of the tumultuous life and artistic career of one of the most creative photographers of the 1960s (New York magazine). Diane Arbus became famous for her intimate and unconventional portraits of twins, dwarfs, sideshow performers, eccentrics, and everyday “freaks.” Condemned by some for voyeurism, praised by others for compassion, she was nonetheless a transformative figure in twentieth-century photography and hailed by all for her undeniable genius.

The Diane Arbus Poems is a poetic tribute to the life and work of the photographer Diane Arbus. In this sequence, Stephen Guppy crafts poems from the events of Arbus' life and gives voice to the subjects of her confrontational portraits. Using language that is often as visceral and stark as the photographer's famous images, Guppy invites the reader to explore the impact and implications of Arbus' work in particular and of the replication of the human image in general.GET BOOK!

Untitled is the third volume of Diane Arbuss work and the only one devoted exclusively to a single project. The photographs were taken at residences for the mentally retarded between 1969 and 1971, in the last years of Arbuss life. Although she considered doing a book on the subject, the vast majority of these pictures remained unpublished prior to this volume. These photographs achieve a lyricism, an emotional purity that sets them apart from all her other accomplishments. Finally what Ive beenGET BOOK!
