The work of two world-renowned photographers is in the frame in Adelaide. 

Fans of photography can catch the work of Australian artist Tracey Moffatt and New York photographer Diane Arbus at the Art Gallery of South Australia until the end of September.

In Diane Arbus: American Portraits, 36 rare vintage prints captured during the last decade of Arbus’ life (1923-71) are on display. 

Arbus was known for photographing those on the fringes of society, including identical twins, dwarves, transgender people, nudists and circus performers. 

ARBUS:  Identical twins.

In Tracey Moffatt: Body Remembers, 10 sepia-toned black and white photographs recall Moffatt’s personal and matrilineal history of domestic servitude.

The Brisbane-born artist was the first Indigenous person to have a solo exhibition in the Australian pavilion at the Venice Biennale.

She has said her work portrays social issues including the plight of refugees and Indigenous rights, as seen through her eyes, and that Body Remembers is based loosely on family history.
