In the Lens of Diane Arbus

David Seagall of The Washington Post tracks down some of the people who have appeared in the photos of Diane Arbus.

Tracking down the people Arbus photographed is tricky because the
executors of her estate won’t disclose the names of her subjects. But
the identities of a few are known because they stepped forward at some
point and said, "That’s me." Others are known because Arbus for years
had a lucrative sideline shooting family portraits, and some of those
subjects have provided copies of the photos, along with their names, to
museums.
