MOMENTS | Rehash: #FBF Amy Arbus’ ‘80s Street Style Photography Captured New York’s Mish-Mash Style Subculture

We’ve curated the best of digital age-inspired creativity—from user-generated content, mash-ups, and remixes to collaborations between multi-disciplined makers.

Amy Arbus, daughter of the legendary Diane Arbus and protégé of esteemed fashion photographer Richard Avedon, has been capturing street style well before the time of digital photography—before fashion blogs and Instagram allowed for instant style gratification. In the ‘80s, Arbus started as The Village Voice’s style photographer and captured the eclectic styles of every figure in New York subculture, from Madonna and Phoebe Lègére to Andre Walker and The Clash pre-fame. In an interview with AnOther Magazine, Arbus talks about what inspires her and tells the story behind some of her most iconic images.
