One of photography's most original artists examines the celebrities of her time in a remarkable collection of portraits. Diane Arbus: Photographe de Presse presents more than one hundred portraits and features profiles Arbus wrote to accompany her pictures. Luminaries include Jayne Mansfield, Mae West, William Golding, Susan Sontag, Norman Mailer, and many others. The book reveals the growth of an artist who posed no artificial boundary between art and the paying job, and who succeeded, regardless of the outlet, in putting her own uncompromising, indelible stamp on the visual imagination.
