There is greatness in the beginnings. Diane Arbus is undeniably one of the most influential photographers of the last century. Her work is a cornerstone to the art form. She created a raw aesthetic all her own that many have in her wake, tried to emulate. It is always intriguing to read the early drafts of writers, to see the fetal stages of someones career, the seedlings that later grow into what we praise them to be. The MET is currently hosting an exhibit focusing on the early year of her career, particularly images taken from 1956-72.
