    Default Diane Arbus

    Diane Arbus (14 March 1923 – 26 July 1971) was one of the most original and influential American photographers of the 20th century. In 2003 she and her work were the subject of a major exhibition: Diane Arbus Revelations that was organized by the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art and traveled to other locations including The Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York City in 2005.

    •A photograph is a secret about a secret. The more it tells you the less you know.


    •I always thought of photography as a naughty thing to do - that was one of my favorite things about it, and when I first did it, I felt very perverse.


    •I really believe there are things nobody would see if I didn't photograph them.


    •I work from awkwardness. By that I mean I don't like to arrange things. If I stand in front of something, instead of arranging it, I arrange myself.


    •Love involves a peculiar unfathomable combination of understanding and misunderstanding.


    •Men are but children of a larger growth, Our appetites as apt to change as theirs, And full as craving too, and full as vain.


    •My favorite thing is to go where I've never been.


    •Nothing is ever the same as they said it was.


    •Regardless of how you feel inside, always try to look like a winner. Even if you are behind, a sustained look of control and confidence can give you a mental edge that results in victory.


    •The more specific you are, the more general it'll be.

    •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.

    •The world can only be grasped by action, not by contemplation. The hand is the cutting edge of the mind.

    •When you grow up your mother says, 'Wear rubbers or you'll catch cold.' When you become an adult you discover that you have the right not to wear rubbers and to see if you catch cold or not. It's something like that.


    •You see someone on the street, and essentially what you notice about them is the flaw.

    •If I were just curious, it would be very hard to say to someone, "I want to come to your house and have you talk to me and tell me the story of your life." I mean people are going to say, "You're crazy." Plus they're going to keep mighty guarded. But the camera is a kind of license. A lot of people, they want to be paid that much attention and that's a reasonable kind of attention to be paid.

    • There are always two things that happen. One is recognition and the other is that it's totally peculiar. But there's some sense in which I always identify with them.

    • The thing that's important to know is that you never know. You're always sort of feeling your way.

    • I always thought of photography as a naughty thing to do -- that was one of my favorite things about it, and when I first did it, I felt very perverse.

    • I never have taken a picture I've intended. They're always better or worse.

    • It's important to take bad pictures. It's the bad ones that have to do with what you've never done before. They can make you recognize something you hadn't seen in a way that will make you recognize it when you see it again.

    • There are things which nobody would see unless I photographed them.

    • Everybody has that thing where they need to look one way but they come out looking another way and that's what people observe. You see someone on the street and essentially what you notice about them is the flaw.

    • I work from awkwardness. By that I mean I don't like to arrange things. If I stand in front of something, instead of arranging it, I arrange myself.

    • One thing I would never photograph is a dog lying in the mud.

    • My favorite thing is to go where I've never been.

    • Freaks was a thing I photographed a lot. 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.

    • 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.

    • Nothing is easier than self-deceit. For what each man wishes, that he also believes to be true.

    • It gets to seem as if way back in the Garden of Eden after the Fall, Adam and Eve had begged the Lord to forgive them and He, in his boundless exasperation, had said, ''All right, then. Stay. Stay in the Garden. Get civilized. Procreate. Muck it up.'' And they did.

    В каждой ее фотографии характер. Я всегда поражалась ее особенности суметь схватить такой момент. Это делает ее такой особенной.





    еще один очень яркий типаж.

    фильм есть такой, посмотрите обязательно
    я смотрела [Fur]
    очень понравился
    там сплошной эротизм
    хоотя скрытый
    о любви нормальной женщины к уродцу
    уродца играет [Robert Downey], там он смертельно обаятелен, хоть и выглядит , как чудовище из Аленького цветочка
    Вы пробовали когда-нибудь зашвырнуть комара?Далеко-далеко? Он нелетит. То есть он летит, но сам по себе и плюет на вас. Поэтому надо быть очень легким и независимым. :D
