Diane Arbus

"Freaks was a thing I photographed a lot ... it had a terrific kind of excitement for me... Most people go through life dreading they'll have a traumatic experience. Freaks are born with their trauma. They've already passed it. They're aristocrats". [ ~ Diane Arbus]

Diane Arbus [1923- 1971] ... was an American photographer noted for her portraits of people on the fringes of the society. A central feature of many Arbus pictures is relationships or their dysfunction.
