Born in a wealthy family, Diane Arbus decides, from a young age, to escape it the best she could. She thus marries a photographer, Allan Arbus, at 18 years old and both found a studio, managing to make a living when working for such magazines as Vogue or Glamour. Yet it is only at 38, after having been left by her husband that she dedicates herself to her personal work. In 1967, thirty of her photographs are presented at the New York MoMA alongside Lee Friedlander and Garry Winogrand in a now legendary exhibition, New Documents, that changes the face of documentary photography. It was Lisette Model with whom she had studied who had encouraged the American photographer to depict the unusual, the taboo and the bizarre. She thus plunges into New York’s underworld and becomes the celebrated ‘photographer of freaks’, an anthropologist of a non-conformist America: black and white portraits of middle-class families and couples, travesties, dwarves, homosexuals or a pair of singular twins that will later inspire Stanley Kubrick for Shining. Diane Arbus admitted that she was capable of everything to take a good picture, she thus often slept with her sitters - ‘I always thought of photography as a naughty thing to do, that was one of my favorite things about it, and when I first did it, I felt very perverse’ - and put to the test her mental health: she would suicide herself in 1971. Exploring New York and its uncommon subjects, the photographer had turned herself into Diana, the Huntress.
