Diane Arbus : a biography by Patricia Bosworth( Book )

37 editions published between 1984 and 2012 in 3 languages and held by 2,098 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In this book we follow Arbus' progress as a photographer - coming to see how the work of others influenced her, and how the "New Documents" exhibit at the Museum of Modern Art in 1967 was both a triumph for her an and acceleration of her emotional decline. And also, through the voices of her friends and colleagues, of her mother, sister, and brother, we follow the dangerous and ultimately fatal course of her struggle to confront the fears and anguish that pursued her throughout her life. Finally we come to understand why, despite growing recognition, she felt that her "gorgeous mountain of a life had become a desert," as she slipped closer and closer to the moment of utter despair--Jacket

Dreamer with a thousand thrills : Tom Palumbo, the rediscovered photographs by Patricia Bosworth( Book )

1 edition published in 2018 in English and held by 42 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"During the 1950s and 60s, Tom Palumbo was part of an influential group of young photographers working for the best fashion magazines in America - Harper's Bazaar and Vogue. Tom perfected his craft under the guidance of legends like Alexey Brodovitch, Carmel Snow, Diana Vreeland, and Alex Liberman. Tom's serene style contrasted with Richard Avedon's jazzed-up images and Lillian Bassman's soft blurred effects. Often Tom's particular layouts provided the balance in an issue. His pictures invariably enhanced the fashions of the 50s, where women were thought of as objects of worship, and beauty was thought of as an ideal. Tom photographed every day, producing unique images like jazz legend Miles Davis laughing. He loved taking pictures of artists like next-door neighbors Comden and Green; the young Mia Farrow and Jane Fonda; novelist Jack Kerouac. Late in life, Tom worked in theatre. But to him there was never much difference in the photographs he took or the plays he directed since both contained drama. Paradox and revelation-these two elements energized Tom Palumbo's life. These rediscovered photographs, celebrated in their time but not seen in decades, are presented here in book form for the first time ever, by award-winning author and Palumbo's widow, Patricia Bosworth--Publisher's description

In den 1950er-Jahren lernt die Modefotografin Diane Arbus, Tochter aus behütetem Hause, ihren charmanten New Yorker Nachbarn kennen, der an der "Wolfskrankheit" leidet und über und über behaart ist. Der einfühlsame Mann bestärkt sie, ihren eigenen künstlerischen Weg zu gehen, wobei sie auch ihre Neigung zur Exzentrik entdeckt.
