[b. 1954] is a US photographer and is the daughter of actor Allan Arbus and photographer Diane Arbus
When I ask to photograph someone, it is because I love the way they look and I think I make that clear. I'm paying them a tremendous compliment. What I'm saying is, I want to take you home with me and look at you for the rest of my life. - Amy Arbus - On the question: "How do you get cooperation from your subjects for such wonderful portraits?" Interview with Amy Arbus - Revealing Human Nature Through Portrait Photography.

It’s entirely ridiculous and hopeless to try to compete with somebody who made such a huge contribution to photography... I knew when I went into photography that I would be compared to my mother. I thought to myself, what can I do about that? - Amy Arbus

My mother’s work has been an enormous influence on me, but not literally. By that I mean, my photographs don’t look like hers. That makes it difficult to compare them. What they do share is an emotional intensity. - Amy Arbus
