Friday Inspiration: Duane Michals

Duane Michals name cropped up in a couple of different places for me in the last month and because I pay attention to those kind of coincidences I decided to look him up.

In researching Duane Michals I was surprised by his range from commerical to fine art and everything in between. I didn’t realize for instance that he was responsible for the photograph’s on The Police Album Synchronicity. The work of his that perhaps he’s most famous for are the still films, an example of which ‘Chance Meeting’ is above and incorporating text into his images. He also has a tremendous sense of humor, some of which comes through in the film below.

  1. haha what a coincidence. One of my teachers in college is called Michael Duane (the opposite). He’s Irish and fond of photography too (but didn’t get himself involved in photography itself) but as I heard from him, he likes to paint, mainly as a stress relief!
