ARTHUR LUBOW with JEN GRAVES
Stranger art critic Jen Graves joins us today to conduct an onstage interview with Arthur Lubow, author of Diane Arbus: Portrait of a Photographer (Ecco). “With 12 years of scrupulous research and a critic’s eye, Lubow turned a routine magazine assignment for the "New York Times onto the defining biography of photographer Diane Arbus, whose portraits of twins, circus freaks, and transvestites, among many others, established her as one of the leading artists of the 20th century. ..Relying primarily on interviews with friends, lovers, and colleagues, as well as Arbusas previously unavailable correspondence, Lubow provides not only a comprehensive assessment of her groundbreaking work but, perhaps more significantly, a revealing documentary of Arbus' often-tortured life”-Publishers Weekly. Arthur Lubow has been a contributing editor at Vanity Fair and a staff writer for The New Yorker.
