Duane Michals : Storyteller, Books


The catalogue for the Duane Michals retrospective, edited by Prestel, traces the photographer’s career with more  pictures than ever. In addition to his most famous series are lesser known ones, like Death Comes to the Old Lady, Margaret Finds a Box, Objects of Couture, the press release for his 1970 exhibition at the MoMA, and reproductions of pages from Camera magazine, which frequently published his work. Also, Monacelli Press has published ABCDuane, with a selection of different works and photographs from his collection. The book is organized alphabetically, with each letter evoking an idea, a person, country or artist dear to Michals: D for “Duchamp,” G for “Ghost,” H for “Homosexuality,” L for “Love,” etc.


To mark their release, the New York Public Library is holding a panel discussion with the artist on Wednesday, November 5th, in New York. L’Oeil staff writer Jonas Cuenin will take part in the discussion.
