Diane Arbus' archives were recently gifted to  DEC 19 2007

Diane Arbus' archives were recently gifted to the Met in NYC.

Unlike the belongings of artists who fade gradually from view, which are sometimes scattered, pilfered or lost, Arbus's effects were in some ways frozen in time when she committed suicide at 48. Quickly her life began to acquire a cult status paralleling that of her photography.
