Duane Michals inspiration.

by graceforward

I was first inspired by Duane michals when I saw his photograph sequence of Andy Warhol from 1972. The way he worked with film inspired me and i wanted to recreate the photographs myself, using film. I knew it was going to be challenging to get the exposures and shutter speed right to create the images I wanted. I was expecting it to take a few films until I got it right, However it worked first time. Here is the photo sequence I created and Duane Michals…

I think photographs should be provocative and not tell you what you already know. It takes no great power or magic to reproduce somebody’s face in a photograph. The magic is in seeing people in new ways” – Duane Michals
