FotoFocus Biennial 2016 | Carl Solway Gallery presents Duane Michals: Sequences, Tintypes, and Talking Pictures.

DUANE MICHALS: SEQUENCES, TINTYPES AND TALKING PICTURES
SEPTEMBER 9 – DECEMBER 23
Carl Solway Gallery presents Duane Michals: Sequences, Tintypes, and Talking Pictures. Duane Michals is internationally known for innovative photographic sequences, created in the 1960s and 1970s, which incorporate handwritten texts. Although his images are unaltered, his long exposures and narrative sequencing result in a photographic approach that cannot be considered documentary. Michals instead addresses metaphysical issues, such as memory, mortality, love, and loss. In his words, “Photography deals exquisitely with appearances, but nothing is what it appears to be.” Recently Michals has been painting on tintype portraits. A photographic process from the Civil War era, tintypes are photographs printed on thin metal sheets. In this work, Michals combines painting and photography with nineteenth-century portraiture and twentieth-century modernist references.

Duane Michals (b. 1932) was born in McKeesport, Pennsylvania, and lives and works in New York City.
