Duane Michals interview in Sacramento 

(This is so awesome! Hurray for Sacramento getting a famous photographer to come in town!)  Duane Michals (b. 1932, McKeesport, PA) is one of the great photographic innovators of the last century, widely known for his work with series, multiple exposures, and text.
Michals first made significant, creative strides in the field of photography during the 1960s. In an era heavily influenced by photojournalism, Michals manipulated the medium to communicate narratives. The sequences, for which he is widely known, appropriate cinema’s frame-by-frame format. Michals has also incorporated text as a key component in his works. Rather than serving a didactic or explanatory function, his handwritten text adds another dimension to the images’ meaning and gives voice to Michals’s singular musings, which are poetic, tragic, and humorous, often all at once.


Photographer Duane Michals has become legendary for his unique portrait photography, capturing people, especially celebrities, with an improvisational style. In celebration of the exhibition Duane MichalsThe Portraitist, on view at the Crocker as its debut venue, hear from the artist himself in conversation with curator Linda Benedict-Jones. Michals will offer insight into his long career and the techniques that made him an influential artistic force with a celebrity following.Space is limited, and advance registration is recommended.
