“As part of the inaugural season at The Met Breuer, diane arbus: in the beginning will open…featuring more than 100 photographs that together will redefine one of the most influential and provocative artists of the 20th century. This landmark exhibition will highlight never-before-seen early work of Diane Arbus (1923–71), focusing on the first seven years of her career, from 1956 to 1962—the period in which she developed the idiosyncratic style and approach for which she has been recognized, praised, criticized, and copied the world over.”

Diane Arbus was an intriguing American photographer. Her images are powerful and give people a glimpse into the lives of the marginalized of her era. Diane has been quoted as saying, “Freaks was a thing I photographed a lot…. Most people go through life dreading they’ll have a traumatic experience. Freaks were born with their trauma. They’ve already passed their test in life. They’re aristocrats.”
To see the world through her lens is not only historic, but eye opening and now you have the chance to see some of her earliest works at the Met. The exhibit runs through November 27th so you’ve got a little over a month to head over and see the work of this master photographer of all things gritty and real.
