If there’s a roll of film I will always remember…It’s this one:
This roll from Diane Arbus presents a perfect example of why learning to edit your work is so important. Of course, the image many of us will remember is the one below, Boy with a Toy Grenade, 1962. When first looking at the roll it’s almost impossible to think that the same boy would be forever recognized clenching a hand grenade toy with a crazed look in his eye. This photo perfectly represents who Arbus was as a photographer and the issues she was trying to uncover. Definitely an inspiration in terms of looking within and learning to pick and choose what ideas to follow.
