Diane Arbus (1923 ? 1971) found most of her subjects in New York City and its environs during the 1950s and 1960s. Her portraits of couples, children, carnival performers, nudists, middle-class families, transvestites, people on the street, zealots, eccentrics, and celebrities explore the relationship between appearance and identity, illusion and belief, theater and reality. Organized by SFMOMA to include all of the artist's iconic photographs as well as many that have never been publicly exhibited, Diane Arbus Revelations is the most complete survey of her work ever assembled.



Diane Arbus: Family Albums will be at NYU's Grey Art Gallery from January 13, 2004 to March 27, 2003.

The Diane Arbus Revelations exhibition catalog is fantastic.
