Diane Arbus’ Photograph Analysis

This photograph is of two dwarfs in vintage Halloween costumes. They are standing still on a rough street, pulling a scary pose. The photograph was made on 110th Street, New York in 1969. As what is shown in the photograph it suggests it’s in Halloween time. The focal point in this image is the two dwarfs as they are the most clear part and are centre framed. There is not much lighting in this photograph. Most of it is dark colours which are the colours of Halloween. There is a variety of dark shades in the image, for example on the costumes. The costumes are filled with different shades of dark colours which deepens the darkness of this image.2016-1
