    I just got back from the Diane Arbus Family Albums exhibit. I loved it, and would highly recommend that anyone go see it if they have the opportunity. One of the most fascinating parts was that they were exhibiting many of her contact sheets. I love being able to see what went on during the shoot, and not just the final picked prints. There is also a 20 min long video that includes much of her own dialogue.

    Right now it is at the Spencer Museum of Art on the KU campus in Lawrence, KS until Jan 16, 2005

    It will be coming to:

    Portland Art Museum, Portland , OR 2/19/2005 - 4/25/2005

    Georgia Museum of Art, University of Georgia 6/18/2005 - 8/14/2005

    Reynolda House, Museum of American Art, Winston-Salem, NC 9/15/2005 - 12/4/2005

    Go, it's inspiring.

    Cool! I will have to go and see that! And that reminds me that I gotta get to see the Edward Weston exhibit before it leaves the museum this month... :|

    Ha, I bet it was fascinating. I'd love to see it. I love looking at the masters like you've described, everything laid out so you can see the whole process, in addition to viewing the final piece.

    I hope it gets enough buzz during its run here (about an hour away from Atlanta, it looks like) to remind me. I'd head out there for a view.

    Thanks for the review, Matt. :D
