During the 1980s, she had a monthly page in the Village Voice's style section. Her work has also appeared in The New Yorker, Vanity Fair, Rolling Stone, Architectural Digest, and The New York Times Magazine.
Arbus has published several books of photography: No Place Like Home (1986), The Inconvenience of Being Born (1999), and On the Street 1980–1990 (2006). Arbus's most recent book, The Fourth Wall was published in April 2008. The New Yorker calls it her "masterpiece"
In a talk at UCLA's Hammer Museum, Arbus described her reluctance to become a photographer and her years studying at the Berklee College of Music and hanging out with The Cars (then still unknown), before studying at the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston. In an interview published in The Guardian, she explains her initial reluctance to take up photography, saying, "I was holding myself back, afraid to compete with this legend...But I remember the minute the viewfinder came up to my eye, I was like, Oh my God, I'm home."
