Diane Arbus at Hayward Gallery

Diane Arbus is often credited as being one of the most well known female photographers of our time. However, around half of her entire catalogue which was produced between 1956 and 1962 is rarely seen. This new exhibition at the Hayward Gallery unveils the little known images from this period. Prepare for a deep dive into Arbus’s confrontational but sympathetic style.
