the change is noticeable
your lushness is fading
as the days get longer
the sun shifts north
and the rains
DIANE ARBUS (1923-1971)
‘In the Beginning’
First 7 years of her career 1956-1962
People and more people.
On the streets, in apartments, tattoo parlors, drag shows…..
A mass of humanity.
Throughout the exhibit there were quotes from Diane on the walls.
I paused for a while with each one.
≈≈ It wasn’t about the photograph it was about the subject.
“For me the subject of the picture is always more important than the picture. And more complicated.”
