Noirsville Iconic Artwork/Photograph of the Week
Diane Arbus was one of the most distinctive photographers in the twentieth century, known for her eerie portraits and offbeat subjects. She married Allan Arbus in 1941 who taught her photography. She began to pursue taking photographs of people she found during her wanderings around New York City. She visited seedy hotels, public parks, a morgue, and other various locales. The raw quality of her work brought her recognition by the Museum of Modern Art. She committed suicide in her New York apartment on July 26, 1971. Her work remains a subject of intense interest, and a lot of it is quite Noir-ish.
