Exhibition on view through December 28, 2013
This exhibition reveals in the title alone its intent: to trace the thread of the potency in Diane Arbus's work back to its very beginning. We move through imagery from end to beginning and lean that even in the early years of making there was a fascination with the figure, often singular and in private spaces. Here in the surroundings of their own worlds Arbus framed her subjects to unravel the story around each and learn the secrets of their life and means they employed to form their community or even alienation. It is hard to believe even now that Arbus' work gained as much lasting power as it did in only 15 years of working. Through 15 images, one per year, Fraenkel Gallery will inspire perspective on the life and work of this photographic legend.
