Diane Arbus is was an American photographer. She was mostly known for taking photos of dwarfs, giants, transgender people, nudists, and circus performers. She really didn’t travel anywhere expect capturing memories in her home New York City.  The school that she went to was The New School, and Ethical Culture Fieldston School. She and Allan became quite a successful team, with photographs appearing in such magazines as Vogue. Allan Arbus was married to Diane. Until soon they started to seperate the next year she went through depression then later she did suicide. One of her famous photos are two identical twins which shows one frowning while the other in the right seems to be happy.They both seem to know something the viewer does not, which is likely why the disconcerting image was later reproduced in movies like “The Shining.” This artwork is one of my favorite because show both emotion sadness and happiness.
