aristocrats

There’s a quality of legend about freaks.  Like a person in a fairy tale who stops you and demands that you answer a riddle.  Most people go through life dreading they’ll have a traumatic experience.  Freaks were born with their trauma.  They’ve already passed their test in life.  They’re aristocrats.

  1. These words are brilliant and Diane Arbus was centuries ahead of her time. She is one of my mentors in the history of female photographers and revolutionists.
