About the Author

Max Kozloff is an American art historian, art critic of modern art, and photographer. He has been art editor at The Nation and executive editor of Artforum.
Diane Arbus (1923-1971) is one of the most original and influential artists of the twentieth century. She studied photography with Berenice Abbott, Alexey Brodovitch, and Lisette Model and had her first published photographs appear in Esquire in 1960. In 1963 and 1966 she was awarded John Simon Guggenheim Fellowships and was one of three photographers whose work was the focus of New Documents, John Szarkowski's landmark exhibition at The Museum of Modern Art, New York, in 1967. Arbus's depictions of couples, children, female impersonators, nudists, New York City pedestrians, suburban families, circus performers, and celebrities, among others, span the breadth of the postwar American social sphere and constitute a diverse and singularly compelling portrait of humanity.


It's hard to overestimate the influence that these modest, slice-of-life scenes would have on subsequent generations of photographers.--The New Yorker
MOMA's new book not only pays tribute to the landmark show but also provides the exhibition catalogue that never was: the book includes installation shots and Szarkowski's seminal wall text alongside every picture that was displayed.--The New Yorker
