Never Before Seen Photographs by the Inimitable Diane Arbus

By the time Diane Arbus took her own life in 1971, aged 48, she had changed photography indelibly. In the 15 years that she was active, her raw portraits of society’s rejected, dejected and debilitated – her “freaks” of New York – were deeply disquieting to some viewers and remarkably humanist for others, making her one of the best-known photographers of the second half of the 20th century. Arbus was known not only for her persistent subject matter and style, but for the close personal relationships she established with her models, many of whom she returned to photograph again over the years. via AnotherMag
