Triplets in their bedroom, N.J. by Diane Arbus (1963)

The photograph titled “Triplets in their bedroom, N.J.” was captured by Diane Arbus in 1963. It features three identical young women, presumably triplets, sitting side by side on a bed. The triplets are dressed in similar white blouses and dark skirts, creating a uniform appearance. Each triplet has a unique but subtle expression, with the central figure facing slightly towards the camera and the other two with their heads turned slightly in different directions, though all three stare directly at the viewer. The background is a patterned wallpaper that fills the frame, contrasting with the plainness of their clothing. The overall mood of the photograph is one of an intimate, yet somewhat unsettling, portrait that captures the similarities and individual nuances of the triplets.
