Aperture Monograph, by Diane Arbus

Why?

"The succinct power of the portrait in its beauty and its ugliness. Certainly, that book has been very important to me and I think she's just an extraordinary artist." 
- Christian Witkin, Photographer

"We've got to hold the book in our hands, and it's not like online. When you have a real book in your hands that you can flip the pages, you know, flip those pages through and absorb those photographs..."
- Coreen SImpson, Photographer

"This is a book that teaches you about humanity and asks you to find the connection between yourself and the people in these portraits."
- Stephanie Baptist, Curator
