diane arbus: in the beginning

This exhibition explores the first seven years of photographer Diane Arbus’ career, from 1956 to 1962.

Arbus made most of her photographs in New York City, where she was born and died. Her photographs of children and eccentrics, couples and circus performers, female impersonators and pedestrians are among the most intimate, surprising and haunting works of art of the 20th century.

This exhibition is the first solo show of Arbus’ work in the UK for 12 years. Organised by The Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York, it features more than 100 photographs, the majority of which are drawn from the Diane Arbus Archive, and have never before been exhibited in Europe.

The exhibition was organised by The Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York.
