Comment(s): According to “Gordon’s Photography Prices” the auction record for a silver print of this scarce image is $204,000 realized at Christie's, New York, 10/12/2005, lot #71. Arbus’s direct, confrontational approach to photography meant that her subjects did not always like their portraits. After seeing his, the writer Norman Mailer famously said, "giving a camera to Diane Arbus is like putting a live grenade in the hands of a child. Image copyright © The Estate of Diane Arbus, LLC.
