A photographic muse: Diane Arbus

If you're not familiar with photographer Diane Arbus, now's the time to get acquainted. Her photos are intimate and incredible; they overflow with humanity and honesty. In her journey towards understanding, Arbus captured something equally quirky, haunting, and moving in each image. Every time I look at her work, I am reminded that art is so intrinsically important to the collective compassion of a society; without it, we are lost and merely surviving.

A retrospective will be on display at foam, the photo museum in Amsterdam, from 26 October 2012 - 13 January 2013.
