Secretary at West German Radio in Cologne 1931. Photographer: August Sander

My drama teacher once made us write a short play after we picked a Diane Arbus photo at random. I picked this one and wrote about a cross-dressing Hollywood starlet stranded in a desert ghost town.

Photo: Bruce Davidson. The photographer encountered this young woman holding a kitten quite by chance. London, 1960.

"After one look at this planet any visitor from outer space would say 'I want to see the manager." -William S. Burroughs -photo by Diane Arbus

Diane Arbus was American photographer and writer noted for black-and-white square photographs of "deviant and marginal people (dwarfs, giants, transvestites, nudists, circus performers) or of people whose normality seems ugly or surreal." A friend said that Arbus said that she was "afraid... that she would be known simply as 'the photographer of freaks'"; however, that phrase has been used repeatedly to describe her.
