Diane Arbus was one of the greatest photographers of the last century. Her portraiture of freaks, circus performers, twins, nudists and others on the social margins connected with a wide public at a deep psychological level. Her suicide in New York in 1971 overshadowed the reception to her work. Her posthumous exhibition at the Museum of Modern Art a year later drew lines around the block. She was born into a Russian-Jewish family, the Nemerovs, who owned a department store on Fifth Avenue. They were family friends with the Avedons. Richard Avedon later championed Arbus’s work. Avedon rose to greater and greater commercial success through the magazine world. Arbus died in a rent-protected apartment scrambling to earn her keep with odd teaching assignments. Lubow’s biography begins at the moment Arbus quit the world of commercial photography to be an artist. She was uncompromising in that ambition. The book ends with her death. The entire narrative is a slow march towards that event.

“A spellbinding portrait” of the tumultuous life and artistic career of one of the most creative photographers of the 1960s (New York magazine). Diane Arbus became famous for her intimate and unconventional portraits of twins, dwarfs, sideshow performers, eccentrics, and everyday “freaks.” Condemned by some for voyeurism, praised by others for compassion, she was nonetheless a transformative figure in twentieth-century photography and hailed by all for her undeniable genius. Her life was cut short when she committed suicide in 1971 at the peak of her career. In the first complete biography of Arbus, author Patricia Bosworth traces the arc of Arbus’s remarkable life: her sheltered upper-class childhood and passionate, all-consuming marriage to Allan Arbus; her roles as wife and devoted mother; and her evolution from fashion photographer to critically acclaimed artist—one who forever altered the boundaries of photography.

Über eine Zeitspanne von drei Generationen und ebenso vielen Kriegen erkundet dieser Roman die Herzen der Männer: ihre Schwächen und Geheimnisse, ihre Bedürfnisse und Werte. Damit legt Nickolas Butler nach »Shotgun Lovesongs« ein vielschichtiges und sensibles Epos über die Verletzungen, die Männer einander und anderen zufügen, vor. In den Augen seines Vaters ist Nelson eine Enttäuschung. Wer will schon ein Kind, das weder Freunde noch Selbstbewusstsein besitzt? Je intensiver der verunsicherte Junge sich nach Zuwendung sehnt, desto stärker sondert sich der Vater ab, bis er irgendwann ganz aus dem Leben seines Sohnes verschwindet. Doch in einem Punkt hat er sich getäuscht. Nelson ist nicht allein. Jonathan, sein bester Freund aus dem Pfadfinderlager, ist das genaue Gegenteil von Nelson: bei allen beliebt, pragmatisch und mit einer unverwüstlichen Leichtigkeit ausgestattet. Was aber treibt jemanden wie Jonathan dazu, sich mit einem Außenseiter anzufreunden? Und stand Jonathan wirklich immer so rückhaltlos zu ihm? Das Leben im rauhen Wisconsin verlangt Nelson, Jonathan und dessen Familie Prüfungen ab, die Freundschaft und Loyalität auf eine harte Probe stellen.

Diane Arbus (1923-1971) is renowned for her provocative and unsettling portraits of modern Americans. This book presents a significant body of previously unpublished pictures by Arbus and proposes a radically new way to understand her goals, strategies, and overall work. Arbus's portrait sessions, including more than 300 photographs she took of a New York family one weekend in 1969. Anthony Lee and John Pultz put to the test Arbus's claim that she was developing a family album. They present other images Arbus shot for Esquire magazine (including pictures of the families of Ricky Nelson, Jayne Mansfield, and Ogden Reid) and discuss her interest in photographic groupings of both traditional and alternative families. Challenging common interpretations of Arbus, the authors reveal a photographer far more savvy with the camera, more aware of photography as an artistic and commercial practice, and more sensitive to the social and cultural tensions of the 1960s than has been acknowledged before.
