Diane Arbus was a revolutionary photographer, especially considering the time she lived in. She depicted eerie and surreal scenes with people she met at strange hotels, parks, and morgues. All of her photos are black and white and square cropped. A common motif in her work is repetition; she often photographed pairs or groups of three. This is one of my favorite parts of her work. I also like how her portraits are posed. The subjects are typically just sitting or standing with a blank expression. I think because they are typically so strange, she wanted the main focus to be on the oddity. Although her work seems quite dark, she manages to pull it off in a way that creates a happy mood.
