Duane Michals Exhibition

Boy in Leningrad, 1958. Silver gelatin print: 20.32 × 25.40 cm. © DC Moore Gallery, New York

The work of the American photographer Duane Michals ranges across many different forms of expression. This diversity is reflected in this retrospective, which can be visited until 10 September at the Fundación Mapfre in Barcelona.

Now 84 years old, Michals continues taking photographs and inventing techniques to serve his need for self-expression. Considered an important figure in the American avant-garde, the artist tears down the barriers between photography and other disciplines, such as poetry and painting.

Michals may be considered to have renewed the language of photography. He often includes hand-written texts on his printed portrait photos. His personality, concerns, and sense of humour can be sensed in almost all of his work.
