Bringing together for the first time the work she produced during the final few years of her life, Untitled is the third volume of Diane Arbus’ work and the only one devoted exclusively to a single project. The photographs were taken at residences for people with intellectual disabilities between 1969 and 1971. Although she considered doing a book on the subject, the vast majority of these pictures remained unpublished prior to this volume.
These photographs achieve a lyricism, an emotional purity that sets them apart from all her other accomplishments. “Finally what I’ve been searching for,” Arbus wrote at the time. Untitled may well be the photographer's most transcendent, most romantic vision. It is a celebration of the singularity and connectedness of each and every one of us. For Diane Arbus, this is what making pictures was all about.
