Masters of photography – Diane Arbus (documentary, 1972)

Someone must have sent me this or linked to it recently, because it was in my “watch later” list on the Youtubes.

I listened to it three times today already whilst working, I might listen to it again.

“Everybody has that thing when they need to look one way but they come out looking another way and that is what people observe.

You see someone on the street and essentially what you notice about them is the flaw.

It’s just extraordinary that we should be given these peculiarities and not content with what we were given we create a whole other set. Our whole guise is like giving a sign to the world to think of us a certain way.

But 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 have always called, the gap between intention and effect.”
