More Arbus

I found an on-line portfolio of some of Diane Arbus's photographs. One of my favorites is the one pictured left, described as "The King and Queen of a Senior Citizens Dance, N.Y.C. 1970."

It's interesting to me that many of her subjects, while shocking at the time, are now quite mainstream. This is especially true of the portraits of the the transvestites and the heavily tattooed circus man. You really need to look at the dates to get a full appreciation of the photos.
