"She wasn't interested in making pictures that looked like art, or illustrated an opinion, or showed us things the way we wished they were. She wasn't interested in self-expression. There are beautiful photographs here and making beautiful photographs was important to her. But, for her, the beauty of the photograph originated in the thing itself."
Doon Arbus, excerpted from the afterword to Untitled.

During a relatively brief career, Diane Arbus created a distinctly personal style of portraiture that made her one of the great 20th-century photographers. Born in New York in 1923, by the 1950s she was supporting herself by working for magazines such as Vogue and Glamour. Two Guggenheim awards (1963 and 1966) allowed her to travel and undertake her own projects. The artist died in 1971. Retrospectives of her work have been shown at the Victoria and Albert Museum, London, and The Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York.

Diane Arbus: An Aperture MonographDiane Arbus: An Aperture Monograph

Fortieth-Anniversary Edition

Published by Aperture.
Edited by Marvin Israel, Doon Arbus.

When Diane Arbus died in 1971 at the age of 48, she was already a significant influence--even something of a legend--for serious photographers, although only a relatively small number of her most important pictures were widely known at the time. The publication of Diane Arbus: An Aperture Monograph in 1972--along with the posthumous retrospective at The Museum of Modern Art--offered the general public its first encounter with the breadth and power of her achievements. The response was unprecedented. The monograph, composed of 80 photographs, was edited and designed by the painter Marvin Israel, Diane Arbus’ friend and colleague, and by her daughter Doon Arbus. Their goal in producing the book was to remain as faithful as possible to the standards by which Arbus judged her own work and to the ways in which she hoped it would be seen. Universally acknowledged as a photobook classic, Diane Arbus: An Aperture Monograph is a timeless masterpiece with editions in five languages, and remains the foundation of her international reputation. A quarter of a century has done nothing to diminish the riveting impact of these pictures or the controversy they inspire. Arbus’ photographs penetrate the psyche with all the force of a personal encounter and, in doing so, transform the way we see the world and the people in it.

Diane Arbus: UntitledDiane Arbus: Untitled

Published by Aperture.
Afterword by Doon Arbus.

Untitled is the only volume of Diane Arbus' work devoted exclusively to a single project. The photographs were taken at residences for the mentally retarded between 1969 and 1971, in the last years of Arbus' life. Although she considered making a book on the subject, the vast majority of these pictures have remained unpublished until now. These photographs achieve a lyricism and an emotional purity that sets them apart from all her other accomplishments: “Finally what I've been searching for,” she wrote at the time. The product of her consistently unflinching regard for reality as she found it, Untitled may well be Arbus' most transcendent, most romantic vision. It is a celebration of the singularity and connectedness of each and every one of us, and demands of us what it demanded of her: the courage to see things as they are and the grace to permit them to simply be. For Diane Arbus, this is what making pictures was all about. Untitled includes an afterword by Doon Arbus, the photographer's daughter, who writes that the intent of these works “wasn't. . . about who or what she saw, but about the experience of seeing it and the power of her photographs to make that experience visible.”

Diane Arbus: A ChronologyDiane Arbus: A Chronology

Published by Aperture.
Text by Elisabeth Sussman, Doon Arbus, Jeff L. Rosenheim.

Diane Arbus: A Chronology is the closest thing possible to a contemporaneous diary by one of the most daring, influential and controversial artists of the twentieth century. Drawn primarily from Arbus' extensive correspondence with friends, family and colleagues, personal notebooks and other unpublished writings, this beautifully produced volume reveals the private thoughts and motivations of an artist whose astonishing vision derived from the courage to see things as they are and the grace to permit them simply to be. Further rounding out Arbus' life and work are exhaustively researched footnotes that amplify the entire chronology. A section at the end of the book provides biographies for 55 family members, friends and colleagues, from Marvin Israel and Lisette Model to Weegee and August Sander. Describing the Chronology in Art in America, Leo Rubinfien noted that “Arbus... wrote as well as she photographed, and her letters, where she heard each nuance of her words, were gifts to the people who received them. Once one has been introduced to it, the beauty of her spirit permanently changes and deepens one's understanding of her pictures.” The texts in Diane Arbus: A Chronology originally appeared in Diane Arbus: Revelations. This volume makes this invaluable material available in an accessible, unique paperback edition for the very first time.
Diane Arbus (1923-1971) revolutionized the terms of the art she practiced. Three volumes of her photographs have been published posthumously by Aperture and have remained continuously available.

Photography's most original artist presents the celebrities of her time in a remarkable collection of portraits. This work reveals the growth of an artist who saw no artificial boundary between art and the paying job and who succeeded in putting her indelible stamp on the visual imagination.
