Diane Arbus (19231971) 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.
Arbus revolutionized the art she practiced and her achievement continues to be a wholly original force in photography. Her bold subject matter and photographic approach produced a body of work that is often shocking in its purity, in its steadfast celebration of things as they are. Her gift for rendering strange those things we consider most familiar, and uncovering the familiar within the exotic, enlarges our understanding of ourselves. Even the earliest examples of her work in spite of their stylistic similarities with other documentary photographers of the period betray elements of Arbus's distinctive sensibility through the expression on a face, someone's posture, the character of the light, and the personal implications of objects in a room or landscape. These elements, animated by the singular relationship between the photographer and her subject, conspire to implicate the viewer with the force of a personal encounter.
The book reproduces 200 full-page duotones of Diane Arbus photographs spanning her entire career, many of them never before seen. It also includes an essay by Sandra S. Phillips and a discussion of Arbus's printing techniques by Neil Selkirk. A 104-page illustrated chronology by Elisabeth Sussman and Doon Arbus is composed mainly of excerpts of the artists writings and amounts to a kind of autobiography. These texts help illuminate the meaning of Diane Arbuss controversial and astonishing vision. [sfmoma.org]
