Born in 1927, Diane Arbus stood out because she photographed certain individuals considered outcasts. The "freaks", as she called them, were individuals shunned away from society.

In this picture, a heavily tattooed circus performer poses for the camera. She also photographed transgender people, nudists and other people not accepted by American society in the 20's.

Her photography has generated very polarized opinions: while some see her almost as a social activist, others view her work as voyeurism, with more shock value than actual art.

This photograph is called "Tattooed Man at a Carnival". Taken in 1970 by Diane Arbus.
