Most Helpful Customer Reviews
The photographs here vary between being haunting and enchanting--all are affecting. Having Arbus' text about the photographs, particularly in the first half of the collection, is an added treasure that brings to life many of her characters, all of whom are just as unbelievable as some of the portraits shown here. This is, in truth, a fascinating and wonderful collection that acts as a step back in time. Absolutely recommended.
