diane arbus: in the beginning - meet the curator

Key Words:

‘Diane Arbus confronted individuals and had a kind of dialogue with them. That dialogue is in her pictures.’ 

In this short video, Jeff L. Rosenheim, curator of diane arbus: in the beginning, introduces the exhibition and discusses the remarkable way that Arbus sought out and engaged with her subjects.
