Germaine Greer on Arbus

I stumbled over this article this morning. Germaine Greer talks about the experience of being photographed by Arbus, and then talks about the photographer's work a little. The money quote:

She may have thought she was getting the mask off, but what she was photographing was actually the clumsy ill-drawn mask itself.

Hey, wait a sec. That sounds like something else I read recently. (full disclosure: the cited piece is 11 years old, and it's possible that I read it and forgot it).
