Go inside the worlds of art, fashion, design, and lifestyle.
Seeing the streets of New York in black and white inevitably holds an air of nostalgia and curious allure. Currently on view at the Met Breuer is an archival display of photographs by Diane Arbus early in her practice.
“diane arbus: in the beginning” showcases a city explored within the years of 1956 and 1962. Framed images of a hauntingly provocative nature are displayed singularly on thin paneled walls. The work highlighted has never been seen before from photographer, and offer a telling glimpse of her budding career.
Arbus used these seven years to truly explore her style of photography and hone her practice. She traversed the streets of the Lower East Side, Times Square, and Coney Island. The photographer uncovered the vulnerabilities of people, capturing children and eccentrics, circus performers, and Fifth Avenue pedestrians.
The exhibition remains on display through November 27.
