Diane Arbus en Paris

"If I were just curious, it would be very hard to say to someone, "I want to come to your house and have you talk to me and tell me the story of your life." I mean people are going to say, "You're crazy." Plus they're going to keep mighty guarded. But the camera is a kind of license. A lot of people, they want to be paid that much attention and that's a reasonable kind of attention to be paid." - Diane Arbus 

 One of the most beautiful things I've had the chance of seeing in person. I first fell in love with Arbus when I was 15 and I ran across her exhibit at the MOCA by complete accident. I went skateboarding with my friend quite often around Little Tokyo in Downtown LA but never knew that the MOCA had another location a few blocks from Grand Ave.  It was rather small compared to the one in Paris but it hit me so hard and I went literally mad. I fell deeply for her and began shooting like a crazy person, I wanted so badly to be just like her, Sylvia Plath and Holden Caulfield at the time. Its probably best I didn't. I found her again in Paris this time the exhibit 4 times bigger than the one at the MOCA with her notes on the walls, her cameras and heaps of work I'd never seen in person before.
