Photography: Diane Arbus Retrospective at Jeu de Paume

Posted by the editors on Thursday, 20 October 2011

A retrospective show of the work of the iconic photographer Diane Arbus (1923-1971), the first of such caliber in France,  has opened at Jeu de Paume in Paris (through 5 February 2012).  Comprising 200 photos, some familiar, some previously unseen, the show spans the brief career, only 15 years, of this revolutionary, probing, and sensitive, New York-based artist.  Ground-breaking at its time, Arbus’ work, “an exploration of the relationship between appearance and identity, illusion and belief, theater and reality”, still powerful today, 50 to 60 years later, glows with her mastery of light and context.
