Two geniuses, one iconic photograph: Norman Mailer hated this Diane Arbus portrait and once said, “Giving a camera to Diane Arbus is like putting a live grenade in the hands of a child.” I love this picture and wonder how he felt about it later in life. His louche manner, his provocative pose, he’s rebelling against that three piece suit. This picture represents much of what I love about the iconoclastic Mailer.
