Charging $53,000 for one Arbus photo in an edition of 50??

Now that doesn't sound like a friend to me!!

I'll take it Mistr Deeler! Herez my munny..

Naw, eye juzt prinnted it off the Intenretz!! LOL!

DO NOT WANT

I love Diane Arbus, but I'm resigned to having books of her work, not actual photos.

Signed by Doon Arbus for that price? That's some serious gallery tax.
Dealers, Scalpers, what's the difference?

Yes.. Signd by Doon Arbus..!!

Diane Arbus signed Very few prints during her short life.... those few that exist with her signiture sell even at auction for over $100,000.

Doon (the Estate executor)worked with photographer and friend Niel Selkirk to create the majority of the Arbus photos available.


The whole thing is laughable.
A snapshot at best
Isn't there something out there
about one being born every minute ?
