「怪胎是我拍攝最大量的題材,他們對我來說具有一種恐怖的興奮。大多數的人們非常害怕在人生中有創痛的經驗。怪胎是從那傷痛中誕生的,並且已經通過那創痛,他們在我眼中是貴族。」  —Diane Arbus

Diane Arbus是來自美國的紀實攝影師,1923年出生在紐約一戶富有的猶太人家庭。或許有些人對她並不陌生,在07年推出的那部由妮可基嫚主演的電影《皮相獵影》就是以她的傳奇人生作為藍本。電影中那位痴迷攝影且性格神秘古怪的富家女,就是現實生活中Diane Arbus的寫照。

The photo shows a boy, with the left strap of his jumper awkwardly hanging off his shoulder, tensely holding his long, thin arms by his side. Clenched in his right hand is a toy grenade, and his left hand is held in a claw-like gesture; his facial expression is maniacal. Diane Arbus captured this photograph by having the boy stand while moving around him, claiming she was trying to find the right angle. The boy became impatient and told her to “Take the picture already!”. His expression conveys his exasperation and impatience with the whole endeavor, as the contact sheet for the shoot reveals. In other pictures, he is seen as a happy child. The boy in the photograph is Colin Wood, son of tennis player Sidney Wood. An original print of the photograph sold for $408,000 in April 2005 at Christie’s New York. ❤️📷👀💣

在Diane Arbus的攝影生涯裡頭,大多以社會中的黑暗面來作為創作題材,詭異、殘缺,挑戰當時甚至是現代倫理的畫面,時常出現在她的作品當中,妓女、同性戀、侏儒、唐氏症患者、變裝癖人士、雙胞胎等屬於那個年代的錯誤符號,都是她的攝影對象。

這些作品都是當時社會骯髒腐敗、違反道德的象徵,但對於Diane Arbus來說,或許這些不經意的畫面所呈現那些來自社會邊緣、社會規範標準之外的對象,都是我們選擇刻意去遺忘、不願去面對的事實真相,而這才應該是面具底下最真實的樣貌。
