In the Be­gin­ning Diane Ar­bus

Professional Photography - - Agenda -

This ex­hi­bi­tion, which we cov­ered in Is­sue 12 (avail­able at www.bit.ly/Back­Is­sue) brings to­gether over 100 pho­to­graphs, many on dis­play for the first time. Diane Ar­bus: In the Be­gin­ning high­lights Ar­bus’ early in­ter­est in cap­tur­ing por­traits of pedes­tri­ans and per­form­ers that would come to de­fine her as an artist. It also re­veals her evo­lu­tion from a 35mm for­mat to the now in­stantly recog­nis­able and widely im­i­tated look of the square for­mat she adopted in 1962. Her work is some of the most fa­mil­iar out there, but this ex­hi­bi­tion and ac­com­pa­ny­ing book cre­ates fresh in­sights into the vi­sion of the iconic Amer­i­can pho­tog­ra­pher whose in­flu­ence con­tin­ues to shape to­day’s am­a­teur and pro­fes­sional pho­tog­ra­phers alike.
