Publisher's Description

A comprehensive overview of more than a half century of portrait photographs by one of our era’s most influential – and entertaining – artists.

Duane Michals: Portraits presents for the first time a comprehensive look at more than a half century of portrait photos by one of our era’s most significant artists. Michals, long recognized for his influential photo sequences, also is a sought-after editorial photographer for major periodicals. With inventive, improvisational flair, he has documented outstanding creative personalities of our era in portraits that constitute a major and under-appreciated side of his creative legacy. Accompanied by his inimitable, sometimes hilarious, observations and reminiscences, the subjects of the portraits, most not previously seen in book form, include performers such as Barbra Streisand and Johnny Cash; contemporary artists including Andy Warhol, David Hockney and Jasper Johns; outstanding authors like Norman Mailer and John Cheever; ‘old masters’ of modern art including René Magritte and Balthus; and Michals’s probing self-portraits and ‘imaginary portraits’ made by painting on vintage photographs.
