    Diane Arbus

    I finally heard the other shoe fall. I was wondering why the big push regarding Photographer Diane Arbus. The front page on the B&W magazine, my local art museum (Portland, OR) has a show and a lecture on her. Plus lots of other galleries and art critiques pushing her.
    I just read that Nicole Kidman is going to be the lead actor in a Diane Arbus bio movie.
    Now, I'm wondering if this was all a fluke or has all this been by design by a media studio? Whats your thoughts?

    Robert, that is interesting, but does it really matter? Please excuse my ignorance. Either way... I admire her wonderful work!!!
    Publicity is always good and I look forward to seeing the movie - if the bio/film sticks to the truth without all the Hollywood hoohaa, which I'm so over.

    Actually, we should be thankful that a photographer - any photographer - is deemed of such importance to warrant a movie. I am looking forward to it and Nicole Kidman will do a good job, I'm sure. Next, I'm hoping for Dustin Hoffman to play Edward Weston.

    I'd say no coincidence.

    But Nicole Kidman? Really? ugh.

    Has Diane Arbus ever been a stranger to the popular press?

    Yeah, pretty much right up to the moment of her death. There's nothing quite like a controversial demise to suddenly make the press sit up and take notice.

    The press is certainly slow, she died a long time ago

    Diane Arbus was very well known in publishing before her death, and she had a MOMA show too, alongside Winogrand and Friedlander.

    The movie deal is based on the unapproved biography.

    The media attention is due to REVELATIONS going on tour after opening here in SF.

    Also on deck: a Robert Capa biopic.
