Duane Michals is an American photographer.
Over the course of 55 years of creative output, Michals has ceaselessly reinvented himself, never content to settle on a single anything. He has staged photographs, he has written on photographs, he has drawn, painted and manipulated photographs, he has constructed elaborate fictional narratives—in short, he has never allowed himself to be limited merely by what was done before in the genre.
I like Michals photographs because they are mysterious and almost supernatural like.
Michal is a storyteller, his images speak volume and are able to tell you a story without words, often those stories are dark and depressing.
