quotes of the day: Arbus

June 5th, 2010

“Love involves a peculiar, unfathomable combination of understanding and misunderstanding.”

“My favorite thing is to go where I’ve never been.”

“Our whole guise is like giving a sign to the world to think of us in a certain way but there’s a point between what you want people to know about you and what you can’t help people knowing about you. And that has to do with what I’ve always called the gap between intention and effect.”

“Freaks was a thing I photographed a lot. … Most people go through life dreading they’ll have a traumatic experience. Freaks were born with their trauma. They’ve already passed their test in life. They’re aristocrats.”

“I do feel I have some slight corner on something about the quality of things. I mean it’s very subtle and a little embarrassing to me, but I really believe there are things which nobody would see unless I photographed them.”

Diane Arbus, photographer (1923-1971)
