Revelations: Diane Arbus

Sale price £59.95 Regular price £70.00

Muscle men, midgets, socialites, circus performers, and asylum inmates: in the 1950s and 1960s, photographer Diane Arbus (1923-1971) created some of the most daring photographs ever made. This companion book to the critically acclaimed retrospective of her work at V&A and SFMOMA in 2003 reproduces two hundred full-page duotones of Diane Arbus photographs spanning her entire career, many of them never before seen.

It also includes an essay, 'The Question of Belief' by Sandra S. Phillips, senior curator of photography at the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art, and 'In the Darkroom' a discussion of Arbus's printing techniques by Neil Selkirk, the only person authorised to print her photographs since her death. A 104-page Chronology illustrated by more than three hundred additional images completes the book and is composed mainly of previously unpublished excerpts from the artist's letters, notebooks, and other writings.
