American entertainer Eddie Carmel was born with pituitary adenoma, which led to his gigantism. He was sometimes a carnival sideshow act, a film actor, a rock and roll singer, and a stand-up comedian. But he was not well known until Diane Arbus’s photo titled Jewish Giant, taken at Home with His Parents in the Bronx, N.Y. in 1970, a print of which sold at auction for $421,000 in 2007. A print of this photo from Arbus’s A Box of Ten Photographs is up for bid in the Photographs auction by Hindman. Another print from the box, A young Brooklyn family going for a Sunday outing, N.Y.C.,1966, is also available in the auction.
