D I A N E   A R B U S : HE/SHE/THEY

Diane Arbus’ documentary work in 1960s New York explores the lives of the ‘other:’ those who live the roles not prescribed to their bodies. These selected images feature female impersonators and women who embody varying forms of womanhood. From femininity constructed through makeup to femininity that rejects gender expectations, Arbus’ portraits are portrayals of atypical American female beauty.
