Duane Michals Quote: “Trust that little voice in your head that says ‘Wouldn’t it be interesting if...’; And then do it.”


Duane Michals Quote: “Don’t try to be an artist. Find the thing within you that needs to be expressed. You might find it is art.”

Duane Michals Quote: “We live in a culture where the one who shouts the loudest gets the most attention. It’s not in the vulgar, it’s not in the shock that one finds art. And it’s not the excessively beautiful. It’s in between; it’s in nuance.”

Duane Michals Quote: “To fulfil a fantasy is the quickest way to destroy it.”

Duane Michals Quote: “I don’t get straight people, but I understand what they look like.”

Duane Michals Quote: “I often try to photograph things about a person that are not visible.”

Duane Michals Quote: “Art has to address eternal issues.”

Duane Michals Quote: “Most portraits are lies. People are rarely what they appear to be, especially in front of a camera. You might know me your entire lifetime and never reveal yourself to me. To interpret wrinkles as character is insult not insight.”

Duane Michals Quote: “To photograph reality is to photograph nothing.”
