The cobbled together origins explain why the text is interesting but fragmentary, yet it suits its subject-you can imagine Diane Arbus jumping from point to point in conversation as her enthusiasm moved her minute to minute. Yet we identify with these unfortunates who for the most part have been born with, and have to bear, a disability or more politically correct, a challenge.

I don’t know how she did it, but when you look at her pictures you really are staring into its subject in an exhilheratingly intimate way.

It was one of the first things I photographed aj it had a terrific kind of excitement for me. Every Arbus photograph uses reality as a weapon against the exhibitionist in order to bring us all into the body, soul, or life of a person who many of us would call cursed while others would call them heroes.

Aperture, a not-for-profit foundation, connects the photo community and its audiences with the most inspiring work, the sharpest ideas, and with each other—in print, in person, and online.
