    The prints were HUGE! You almost felt like you were standing in some of the rooms they were that huge and grand in scale.

    I hadn't really discovered Diane Arbus until very recently when I looked through a book of her work. What an amazing eye for faces and scenes. She certainly looked for 'freaks', like those circus performers and transvestites and nudists. But even more amazing is how she took normal people and captured their most freakish moments. Even babies. I've never seen someone so effectively convey how weird we are, all of us.

    Has anybody mentioned Esther Bubley? -> http://www.estherbubley.com/

    She's been a favourite of mine for a long time. There's something about her photography that absolutely captivates me.

    Nicole,
    I think you mentioned her in another post but I have been inspired by Carol Jerrems courage and drive as a photographer. To achieve what she did in such a short life... Vale Street 1975 is an amazingly powerful image and is one of Australia's great photographs. Here is an article which summarises her life and contribution. The seventies were "my decade" (age 12-21) so many of her images have a powerful connection for me. (Man, I was really scared of sharpies in my teens!!)

    Tony, yes Carol Jerrems was/still is very inspiring and her photographs are stronger than ever. I thoroughly enjoyed the documentary on her as a photographer, which was on the ABC (I think) a year or so ago.

    cindy sherman. her work really revitalized the movement in "constructed" photography, which had been out of fashion for so long. she is simply brilliant, her untitled film stills are among my favorite works. each of those photos are so beautiful and enigmatic, since you don't know what is happening in each scene. and she took the art of self-portraiture to an entirely new level.
