A collection of the works of American photographer Duane Michals, an innovative and influential artist who has reinvented the medium as an instrument of thought and emotion rather than simply an instrument for recording the visible world. Using works from his entire career, the photographs are grouped together according to the themes that have preoccupied him, rather than on the basis of chronology or formal resemblances. Here can be found some of his best loved works, illuminating his breadth of vision, notably his portraits of artists including Warhol and Duchamp and of actors such as Warren Beatty and Jeanne Moreau. The work collected here demonstrates the rare ability of an artist to be freed from all restraints and preconceptions while remaining true to himself.
