Diane Arbus 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.
