    Suzanne,
    Why were the Arbus mentally ill pictures considered controversial?

    Jack,
    At the time they were published,which I believe was sometime in the late 80's, the mentally ill were treated far differently than they were at the time she made the photographs. It would have been unlikely that she would have had the kind of access that she enjoyed. Partly, I think, the issue, was proper permission. The administrators of the hospitals gave permission, not necessarily the patients. Also, the estate apparently was pretty tight lipped about who her subjects were, and which hospitals she photographed in. Some people felt that since the work was incomplete, and she never published it, then it shouldn't be considered part of her ouvre, and that the estate was out to get a quick buck. It's hard to know what her intentions were with the work, or the intetntions of her estate, but I think the work is historically significant.

    This was all brought up far more lucidly in a series of "Letters to the Editor" by two different authors to some magazine. I have not been able to find my copy of the essays, or the authors. If I find them, I'd be happy to mail copies to you. If I don't find them, I could probably track them down.

    Connie Imboden.

    I'm not sure if she is controversial, but her images are strong and sometimes disturbing.
