Slightly irrelevant: Spheres of Influence: Arbus video with Lisette Model interview…

“There’s a quality of legend about freaks… I mean, if you’ve ever spoke with a person with two heads, you know they know something that you don’t… They are aristocrats.” D. Arbus.

“Masters of photography – Diane Arbus” (1972) can be seen on youtube here…
(From about 10:00-13:00 minutes Lisette Model, friend and colleague of Weegee’s, talks about someone who was influenced by Weegee:-)

“Original and unique…

that there are great artists in every era,

who are so new, and so different, that no one can understand them,

the ears and eyes are not used to them…”
