Henk Visch / Diane Arbus

Diane Arbus
Aperture Monograph

In 1972, I was a second year student at the Royal Academy for Art and Design in 's-Hertogenbosch and I found this book by Diane Arbus. Her photographs have opened my eyes. There is a transcript of a conversation with students, 1 year before her death:

 '…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. I mean if you scrutinize reality closely enough, if in some way you really, really get to it, it becomes fantastic….'
