“This artist is daring, extremely gifted, and a born huntress. There may be something naïve about her work if there is anything naïve about the devil. Arbus’s style is all in her subject matter. Her camera technique simply stops at a kind of automatic, seemingly effortless competence. That doesn’t matter: we are satisfied to have her make her own photography speak clearly. Her distinction is in her eye, which is often an eye for the grotesque and gamey; an eye cultivated just for this—to show you fear in a handful of dust,” wrote another prominent photographer Walker Evans.
