In 1962, photographer Diane Arbus arranged to take a small series of photographs at Disneyland. These three images were the result.
Top: A Castle in Disneyland, Cal. 1962
Center: A Rock in Disneyland, Cal. 1962
Bottom: Rocks on Wheels, Disneyland, Cal. 1962
In her notes taken that day, Arbus wrote:
“There are wonderful pseudo places at dawn in Disneyland, ruins of Cambodian temples which never existed, false deserts littered with bones of animals who never died; like a shrine for unbelievers. And black swans swim in the moat of a castle which looks like the advertisement for a dream.”
