Marco de Rivera reports on Diane Arbus at Jeu de Paume (Paris)


Diane Arbus (1923-1971) revolutionized the art of photography.

With over two hundred photographs, the exhibition will discover the source, extent, but also the aspirations of a perfect original force in the world of photography. It will present all the iconic images of the artist, and a large number of photographs that have so far never been exhibited. The early works already show the sensitivity of Arbus, through the expression of a face, the posture of a body, the type of light or the presence of particular objects in a room or a landscape . Inspired by the unique relationship that weaves the photographer with her subject, all these elements combine to invite the viewer to a truly intimate encounter.
