Diane Arbus, Robert Downey Jr and Shining
<html>
<p>I just watched, on the tv, the movie "<a href="https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fur_(film)">Fur - an imaginary portrait of Diane Arbus</a>" by &nbsp;Steven Shainberg and I was really intrigued by the figure of <a href="https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Diane_Arbus">Diane Arbus</a>.&nbsp;</p>
<p>The movie is a fictional, but well done and very interesting to watch. The main actress is Nicole Kidman, but my special mention goes to Robert Downey Jr who keeps his sex appeal intact even if totally recover from furry hair for the most part of the movie (yes, I like Robert Downey Jr!) &nbsp;^_^</p>
<p>Well, come back to the main character: Diane.</p>
<p>I admit that I never seen her works before to watch this movie, but it's never to late and so it was a great surprise for me to discover this photographer and artist. I'm so excited and enthusiast to discover her beautiful and touched works and her life.</p>
<p>Diane Arbus (1923-1971), born as Diane Nemero, is known for the portrait of outsiders and marginalized people &nbsp;as circus performers, dwarfs and other people who the society of that time perceived as ugly or freak.&nbsp;</p>
<p><code>She said "Our whole guise is like giving a sign to the world to think of us in 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've always called the gap between intention and effect" (Rubinfien, Leo. "Where Diane Arbus Went". </code><code><em>Art in America</em></code><code>, volume 93, number 9, pages 65โ€“71, 73, 75, 77, October 2005.</code><a href="https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Diane_Arbus"><code>source</code></a><code> )</code></p>
<p><img src="https://i.imgsafe.org/e938484025.jpg" width="238" height="240"/>&nbsp;<a href="https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Identical_Twins,_Roselle,_New_Jersey,_1967"><em>Identical twins</em></a><em>, 1967</em></p>
<p>In the Identical Twins there are two twins sisters, they wear identical dresses and identical headband, but they have different facial expressions, as you can see. Her biographer (P. Bosworth) wrote that Diane, in this photo, espressed her vision about the identity: &nbsp;"normality in freakishness and the freakishness in normality". I really love this photo, it give me some strong emotion and it involvein more different thoughts my mind and my soul.</p>
<p>The Identical Twins has inspired Stanley Kubrick who paid tribute to the photo and to Diane Arbus in the Shining (1980), where we can see two twin sisters in the same pose.</p>

thanks you so much for the post, @silviabeneforti! Diana Arbus is so good photographer. I don't like much the film (too much this fur! especially I remember the husband's beard in  the end - brrr), but I always so pleased reading or watching about Arbus.

I admit that I have to say thanks to the movie to discover Diane Arbus and thanks some place on internet where I can see her work, they are really interesting, wonderful, her b/w photos can "talk" to the watcher, great!

Complimenti per il bello post Silvia!. Il film รจ molto bello fatto e si vuoi conoscere un'altra persona molto bella (si giร  non conosci)  รจ la Susan Sontag, scrittore e critica di arte in quella epoca. Lei fa  tante citazione e critiche su le foto di Diane.  (;
