"Diane Arbus has always been a favorite artist of mine, so I am really excited about this new exhibit featuring more than 100 never-before-seen images of hers.
The photographs were donated by her daughters, Doon and Amy, to the Met in 2007.
The exhibition focuses on the first 7 years of her career, from 1956 - 1972, the period in which she developed the idiosyncratic style and approach for which she has been recognized praised, criticized, and copied the world over.
Most of the images were taken in NYC where she lived and died.
So, they are also a new glimpse into our past.
On view at The Met Breuer, 945 Fifth Avenue (75th Street) through November 27, 2016.”
