Photographer Duane Michals Tells It Like He Sees It

Here’s a terrific interview with a most original photographer, Duane Michals. He’s funny when he calls Garry Winogrand a hack. (Winogrand famously walked out of Duane’s first gallery show saying, “Come on, let’s go, this isn’t photography.”)

At 88, Michals doesn’t hold anything back. He really know what he wants as a photographer and artist and I think his words will be inspiring to artists working in any media. Take a listen.

Here’s Michals’s famous photograph, one of my favorites: This Photograph Is My Proof:
