The experience of viewing a photograph by Diane Arbus is one not readily forgotten. Like great artists before her, she rendered American culture forever changed. Arbus gathered subjects and circumstances together, fully exploring the extravagant manifestations of the human experience that she found inside and outside of the mainstream in carnivals and nudist camps, theaters and backstage dressing rooms, circuses and side shows, wax museums and dance halls, contests and pageants, parties and amusement parks. Throughout her oeuvre, her images are peopled with children, celebrities, religious zealots, middle-class families, transvestites, and eccentrics.

Because the aim of most photographers is to renew a viewer's sense of wonder, they tend to render the world in ways that challenge the eye, unsettle the mind and stir the spirit.

If you're buying for an art lover this season, put these handsome volumes at the top of your shopping list.

In Diane Arbus: Revelations , the transformative effects of this little device are amply represented. Providing a thorough overview of the career of Arbus, a ground-breaking photographer who got her start in the fashion industry in the s, Revelations covers three decades and features full-page reproductions of her work.

The vision thing

Victoria and Albert Museum, London 13 October January Diane Arbus's first retrospective exhibit in - several months after her suicide - shocked the public while mythologising the artist. Over photographs celebrating her range of subjects, from drag queens, wealthy families and Jewish giants to the mentally ill, were lovingly selected by three of her closest companions: her daughter, Doon; her friend, Marvin Israel; and her biggest advocate, John Szarkowski. Exhibited during a period when the status of photography was being simultaneously questioned and defined, Arbus's oeuvre pushed the boundaries of the medium to include uncomfortable images. Although the show shocked many, it still offered a crucial understanding of and new direction for, photography.
