Discoveries of a Past Life
In the process of discovering who my mother was, I've had the eerie yet exciting task of going through the notebooks and letters she filled in the months prior to her death. I relish the little surprises that give me glimpses, however cryptic, of her daily life. In a small, yellow "memo book" I came across this page. I wonder if Arbus wrote this in the notebook herself, and whether my mother planned to interview her along with the other photographers she included in her Images of Man series? I may never know.
