商品の説明

内容紹介

Diane Arbus's unsettling photographs of dwarves and twins, transvestites and giants, both polarized and inspired, and her work had already become legendary when she committed suicide in 1971. This groundbreaking biography examines the private life behind Arbus's controversial art. The book deals with Arbus's pampered Manhattan childhood, her passionate marriage to Allan Arbus, their work together as fashion photographers, the emotional upheaval surrounding the end of their marriage, and the radical, liberating, and ultimately tragic turn Arbus's art took during the 1960s when she was so richly productive. This edition includes a new afterword by Patricia Bosworth that covers the phenomenon of Arbus since her death, the latest Arbus scholarship, and a view of the first major retrospective of Arbus's work as well as notes on the forthcoming motion picture based on her story. Bosworth's engrossing book is a portrait of a woman who drastically altered our sense of what is permissible in photography.

レビュー

"Sensitive...detailed...balanced" (New York Times)

"An excellent biography" (Times Literary Supplement)

"A spirited biography " (Time) --このテキストは、図書館版に関連付けられています。

翻訳は絶版なので、根性出して読みましょう。「ミドルクラスに生まれ階段を急いで駆け下りた」と自認する彼女の伝記には、転落する私生活、猛烈な拒否反応を引き起こす写真展、持病の気分障害(鬱病)に加え、「体臭がきつい」、「シェーヴィングしない」、「自殺して発見されたときは腐乱が始まっていた」など美人アーティストのイメージを壊すような記述が淡々と語られます。彼女の写真には、被写体を撮る彼女自身の姿が強くオーバーラップされるのですが(ヌーディストの写真を撮る時は彼女も全裸にカメラというお間抜けな姿をしていたのですね)、ここまで「階段を下りる」訳は結局わかりません。時折見せる、「ニューヨークの民主党びいきのリベラルで知的で裕福なユダヤ人」風ふるまいのほうが、彼女にとっては偽装だったのでしょうか?

5つ星のうち 5.0 I'm not an Arbus or photography fan, but loved it 2012/12/26
投稿者 Briochegal - (Amazon.com)
形式: Kindle版 Amazonで購入
I thought this was a well written, objective biography of an enigmatic, difficult person. I knew very little about Diane Arbus, and had only seen a few of her most (in)famous photographs. So I had no preconceived idea of her art or personality. This book gives a terrific insight into the New York City creative scene during the 1950's and 1960's. it starts with her wealthy Jewish childhood, her marriage to Alan Arbus, and ends with her suicide. (As an aside, only Hollywood could have cast tall, red-haired Nicole Kidman to play short dark Arbus in the movie about her, "Fur.")

Personally I found Arbus to be unlikeable and, in many ways, unpleasant. I think Bosworth respected her subject as an artist. I liked the fact that the focus is on Arbus' life and work, rather than the more technical aspects of photography.
Is this an accurate portrayal of this artist? I don't know since I don't have any knowledge of Arbus other than this book. It is possible Arbus or photography buffs could find fault.
Is it a good book? Yes, it's well written, well researched and a terrific, if tragic, story

My recommendation: If you want to read a well written, authoritative book about Diane Arbus, or just want to read an interesting biography , you'll enjoy this book.

5つ星のうち 3.0 She was often bored by her subjects and experiences 2013/2/4
投稿者 Amazon Customer - (Amazon.com)
形式: ペーパーバック Amazonで購入
Diane Arbus, this biography tells us, threw herself into a world of nudist camps, orgies, one-night stands, and extremely casual sex, completely divorced from psychological or emotional will or fulfillment. Arbus said she found it boring. Reading this book was something like that for me.

Reading about a person who had a chemical imbalance is kind of pointless, I'm beginning to think. I can never understand such bizarre minds. As a teenager, Diane frequently stripped and masturbated in front of a window while she knew she was being peeped -- or at least she said so, but even if it isn't true, saying so is enough. She demanded everything of herself and her talent but she wouldn't do a book or an exhibition presumably because it would be the end in some way, and she turned down a very lucrative film offer because she felt she wasn't up to the job. She was depressed over her last series of photographs of mentally retarded adults because she couldn't control the subjects or the images. Well, why didn't she move on to other subjects? She had had a bad reaction to one type of anti-depressants in combination with the Pill, so she wouldn't try any other anti-depressants with or without the Pill. Then she killed herself.

As for her art, I'm not sure I understand her claim that she was not being exploitative or sensationalistic in her photos of circus freaks, transsexuals, and nudists. "It's about love," Diane said about a series she was doing for Time-Life. Did that series include "normal" people such as the Westchester family in their back yard, the famous twins, the Puerto Rican woman with a birthmark, the woman with pearl earrings and a hat, the Jewish couple dancing, the best friends, the lady bartender, etc? I wish author Bosworth had spent a chapter on that "love" rather than a single sentence. An exploration of Arbus's feelings about the human condition rather than her feelings about art itself might have yielded much more insight, including an explanation of why she killed herself. Despair over human fragility and vulnerability? Over some cosmic irony that hangs over all of us?

Maybe Arbus is simply too elusive for any biographer. Bosworth drops a lot of names and gets Arbus's contemporaries and friends to talk, but a lot of them are self-conscious blowhards whose descriptions were confusing and therefore forgettable. I have the feeling that if Bosworth had managed to get one or two friends with tons of insight and an ability to speak plainly -- maybe Dick Avedon and Allan Arbus, perhaps Amy Arbus as well -- this would have been a more rewarding read. Or perhaps Bosworth should have just written from the perspective that Arbus was weird and impenetrable and taken us into her life with the plain caveat that we can only watch, not understand.

Anyway, I didn't much like it. Until someone writes a book about that sentence, "It's about love," Arbus is for me yet another artist who's sufficiently known by a wiki article and collections of her work. (Same thing happened to me with Lee Krasner and Frida Kahlo, biographies I also read and reviewed here).

Onto Georgia O'Keeffe, Artemisia Gentilleschi, and Grandma Moses!

This is a beautifully written biography of Diane Arbus, that I highly recommend.
It was very enjoyable for me to learn about Arbus' relationships with her family members and photographer friends.
And, learning about her process in creating photographs, and her relationships with the people she photographs, is extremely interesting.

This is an interesting and informative biography of Diane Arbus. It is informative and intelligent about her work without resorting to academic jargon. It is also manages to be long enough to be thorough but not so long that it becomes repetitive.
