A quarter of a century has done nothing to diminish the riveting impact of these pictures or the controversy they inspire. The Photobook Review Laurel Nakadate Everything that needs to be said has already been said about this book, this record, this heartache, this brave account, this body of evidence.
That new edition is now available as a paperback. This is the Arbus book: it contains 80 of her best known photographs, as well as short texts from classes she taught, excerpts from her writings and interviews. In the introductory text, Arbus is quoted, "I do feel I have some slight corner on something about the quality of things. I mean it's very subtle and a little embarrassing to me, but I really believe there are things which nobody would see unless I photographed them.
It was one of the first things I photographed and it had a terrific kind of excitement for me. I just used to adore them. I still do adore some of them. I don't quite mean they're my best friends but they made me feel a mixture of shame and awe. There's a quality of legend about freaks. Like a person in a fairy tale who stops you and demands that you answer a riddle.
Most people go through life dreading they'll have a traumatic experience. Freaks were born with their trauma. They've already passed their test in life. They're aristocrats. I'm very little drawn to photographing people that are known or even subjects that are known. They fascinate me when I've barely heard of them and the minute they get public, I become terribly blank about them.
