Photographer Amy Arbus sits down with me to talk about what it was like growing up surrounded by so much creativity. As the daughter of one of the most famous and recognizable names in photography, Diane Arbus and her well known photographer/actor father Allan Arbus, Amy had no shortage of inspiration and expectation when she decided to pursue her own creative callings. She realized she felt a natural pull towards photography and wanted to find her personal voice as an artist. She would go on to create a deep body of work across the fine art, editorial, and commercial worlds, and establish her own legacy as a respected photographer, artist, and teacher. During our conversation Amy tells me about the tragic loss of her mother and how that effected her at a young age, what it was like studying under Richard Avedon, the 10 years she spent shooting street portraits in the east village of New York for the Village Voice during what many would consider one of the most creative eras ever, and how she's given back to the community by years of teaching at the International Center of Photography.
