ACP Lecture Series Presents Duane Michals
Duane Michals (b. 1932) is considered an innovator in the field of photography since the 1960's when, consumed with the photograph's capabilities and limitations for storytelling, Michals appropriated the effect of cinema by sequencing his images. His most known images are those on which he has written text. Michal's text does not serve to define one's understanding of a photograph, but rather to add a personal dimension, poetic tension and often humor. The photographer's hand is evident in so much of his work, from the creation of sequences, to writing text on his prints, to more recent projects involving hand-painting on photographs and tintypes.

Over the last 50 years, Michals' work has been celebrated, honored, collected and exhibited internationally. He has been honored with a CAPS Grant, a National Endowment for the Arts Fellowship, the International Center of Photography Infinity Award for Art, the Foto Espana International Award, and an Honorary Doctorate of Fine Arts from Montserrat College of Art, Beverly, Mass. A dozen monographs of his work have been published.

Presented in partnership with Jackson Fine Art in support of Michal's exhibition. With generous sponsorship from the Woodruff Arts Center and Mailchimp.
