Gramercy Park with Duane Michals

  • How high is up? Duane Michals has always been self motivated. "I operate out of my own curiosity. You've got two choices, doing or bullshit. Most people bullshit" Mr. Michals began his career as a graphic designer. However during a trip to Russia at the age of 26 he started taking pictures and discovered he was a natural. He says not going to photography school was his saving grace. "If I had gone to photography school I would have learned the rules, and unlearning is the worst thing."
