Weekly Giveaway – Before the hoopla starts…

Next week the DVD of FUR is released. The fictionalized story of Diane Arbus was first released in the fall to mixed reviews. You will become to see the press on this newly available film.

Well now you can see for yourself. There aren’t many movies with photographers as protagonists so this deserves at least a rental. Stars Nicole Kidman and Robert Downey Jr, in this self proclaimed imaginary portrait, the DVD is being billed as a love story. Wow.

But before you do, before you form an opinion of this artists based on an amalgam of concepts, we’d like to offer you an insight into Diane Arbus’s work through a biography and the recollections of those who knew her and, yes, her own words.

First we have the biography Diane Arbus : A Biography by Patricia Bosworth. Long considered to be the most balanced portrait of a troubled genius, we have 3 of these books for you.

For the DVD, we have the
Masters of Photography – Diane Arbus, a documentary made shortly after her death. The amazing recording or one of her art talks is an incredible record.[photopress:arbus2.jpg,full,alignleft]
