    Diane Arbus: An Aperture Monograph
    Diane Arbus
    Aperture: Millerton, New York, 1972

    Second printing. Pictorial textured paper boards wrapped in dust jacket sporting the same image. Very good/fair. A square, tight copy. Some creasing to the first six pages, otherwise unmarked; dust jacket shows edge wear with a four inch closed tear to rear panel, now protected in an archival mylar cover.

    Issued in conjunction with the first major retrospective of her work, mounted by the Museum of Modern Art in 1972, just a year after her suicide. 

    Diane Arbus (1923-1971), was noted for her portraits of people on the fringes of society such as sex workers, drag queens, dwarfs, giants, as well as ordinary working class citizens in unconventional poses and settings. Arbus became the first American photographer to be exhibited at the Venice Biennale. "For me the subject of the picture is always more important than the picture. And more complicated. I do have a feeling for the print but I don't have a holy feeling for it. I really think what it is, is what it's about. I mean it has to be of something. And what it's of is always more remarkable than what it is." -Diane Arbus
