Diane Arbus (1923–1971) is an influential figure in the world of photography. She focused her camera on non-mainstream groups in society like transexuals, homeless people, and the mentally disabled. Her works inspired the public's re-examining of "normal" and "abnormal", and "moral" and "immoral".
The exhibition will exhibit the photographer's early works between the years 1956 and 1962, among which two-thirds that have never been published before.
