Masters of Photography Series.
A film on the life of Diane Arbus.
Camera Three Productions, Greenwich, CT, 1989.
Richard Avedon once said of Diane Arbus, "Nothing about her life, her photographs or her death was accidental or ordinary. They were mysterious and decisive and unimaginable except to her, which is the way it is with genius." This half-hour documentary explores Diane Arbus' life and work, using her own words, spoken by a friend, as narration. It includes interviews with those who knew her well, including her teacher Lisette Model, colleague Marvin Israel, and curator John Szarkowski. "Diane Arbus' words taped shortly before her suicide capture the verve, charm and honesty she had in abundance. This is how photographers really talk when they talk about photography--about working with the camera, not about the art that results." 29 minutes, VHS.
