About Duane Michals

Duane Michals first garnered critical attention (both appreciative and caustic) for his unorthodox photographic practice in the 1960s and ’70s—a time when photojournalism was a dominating influence on the medium. In fact, the photographer David Seidner once wrote that “’Photographer’ is not exactly an apt title for [Michals]; ‘poet’ would be better suited.” Michals, who believed photographs presented fictions, staged narratives across a sequence of photographs, much like film stills, and presented photographs in conjunction with text. He also employed collage and used multiple exposures in creating his compositions, inspired in part by literature, poetry, philosophy, and artists like René Magritte, Robert Rauschenberg, and Joseph Cornell. Michals was also a commercial photographer for magazines Mademoiselle, Esquire, and Vogue.
