Diane Arbus (1923-71) was one of the most influential photographers of the 20th century. Widely considered to be a pioneer of the social documentary method of photography which blurred the line between art and reportage, the American captured moments which personified the variety of attitudes, cultures, lifestyles and appearances across society. Her images emphasise the importance of trust and respect between photographer and subject.

On loan from the Tate and the National Galleries of Scotland, this selection of work is part of a touring collection which makes exceptional works of international post-war and contemporary art available to institutions across the UK for use in high-profile monographic exhibitions. Since its launch in 2008, some 40 million people have visited Artist Rooms exhibitions.

Also showing is Galloway to Gracefield: A Landscape Meets Artworks until 24th June – a multimedia exhibition showcasing some of the art projects supported by the Galloway Glens Landscape Partnership (pictured: Cyril Wilson, Galloway Landscape, lithograph).
