Diane Arbus was a New York based photographer who shot black and white photographs of “deviant and marginal people.”  She was often referred to as “the photographer of freaks.”  Diane’s work took place in the 40s, 50s and 60s before she took her own life in 1971.  Her pictures have a Twilight Zone-esk element about them that make them bizarrely fascinating.  I can almost guarantee that the creators of American Horror Story are referring to her body of work for their next season which takes place in a 1940s circus sideshow.  Check out some of her pics…..
