Diane Arbus, Robert Frank, and Irving Penn were respected photojournalists with published work in fashion magazines such as Vogue and Harper’s Bazaar. However, they would gain notoriety by turning their lens on the overlooked, unseen, and ostracized in society in the 1950s and 1960s. This post-war period was a time when photography was establishing itself as fine art, and their images would emerge as icons of the era.
Arbus, Frank, Penn: Masterworks of Post-War American Photography features 38 glorious vintage gelatin silver prints including Diane Arbus’s “Identical Twins, Roselle, N.J.,” “Boy with a Toy Hand Grenade in Central Park,” and “Jewish Giant at Home with his Parents in the Bronx”; Robert Frank’s “Trolley, New Orleans,” “Parade, Hoboken,” and “Chicago (Man with Tuba)”; and Irving Penn’s “Mountain Children, Cuzco, Peru,” “Chimney Sweep, London,” and “Running Children, Rabat, Morocco.”
