The recent biography, Diane Arbus: Portrait of a Photographer, brought new attention to her life. New York’s Met Breuer will put the focus back on her work. On display at The Metropolitan Museum of Art’s new space for modern and contemporary art, diane arbus: in the beginning features over 100 photographs from the first seven years of her career (1956-1962). Anticipation for the show is particularly intense because the majority of these works have never before been published or exhibited: quite simply, it is a chance to fully appreciate the development of one of the 20th century’s iconic photographers all over again for the first time.

The exhibition opens at the Met Breuer on July 12. For more information, click here.
