    The Photography of Diane Arbus

    The Photography of Diane Arbus

    48 photographs, a number towards the end I had not seen before.

    I have always enjoyed her work, its always so easy to get hung up on a picture for a few minutes examining the details in each one, and wondering about those people and their lives at that point in time. There web images dont do her work justice though, anyone remotely interested should grab a book or try to find a museum that have some prints hanging.

    I know it's dweebish thing to ask, but what camera(s) did she use most frequently? Some look like them might be made with a Rollei, while others look more wide-angle than a 75mm or 80mm lens would give (yet less than what a Rollei Wide would render). Yet others look like a short telephoto might have been used. Hassie? What? Seems to me she'd want something relatively quiet for some of these.

    She mainly used a Mamiya C TLR. https://www.google.co.uk/search?hl=e....926.11j3.14.0 and the interchangable telephoto and wide angle lenses probably ther 65mm and the 135mm.

    Huh -- hadn't thought of the Mamiya TLRs, despite having owned one and several lens years ago. Nice cameras, very heavy, very versatile.

    Agreed, you get a truss for your hernia with every one you buy , I have two (cameras, I hasten to add,not hernias) and I still use them regularly.

    I read a bio once and always thought the underground darkroom in NYC would be a trip to check out.
