Storyteller : the photographs of Duane Michals by Linda Benedict-Jones( Book )

2 editions published in 2014 in English and held by 308 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"A self-taught photographer, Duane Michals broke away from established traditions of the medium during the 1960s. His messages and poems inscribed on the photographs, and his visual stories created through multiple images, defied the principles of the reigning practitioners of the form. Indeed, Michals considers himself as much a storyteller as a photographer. Accompanying a major traveling retrospective of his work, this book features Michals's best-known early sequences, 'The Spirit Leaves the Body', 'Paradise Regained', and 'Chance Meeting' - as well as works from later in his career such as 'The Bewitched Bee' and 'Who is Sidney Sherman?' Penetrating essays situate Michals within the history of 20th-century photography, explore the artist's images of sexual identity and sensuality, examine his legacy today, and address the childlike aspects of his work - a theme that has never been widely examined. An annotated timeline of Michals's biography includes rare archival materials and provides a unique glimpse into his life. Wide-ranging and timely, this volume offers a fresh appraisal of a popular artist who continues to create moving and experimental works that speak to a broad and evergrowing audience."--Book jacket

A visit with Magritte by Duane Michals( Book )

15 editions published between 1981 and 2011 in English and Spanish and held by 284 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This book records Michals' visit with the great Belgian painter of inverse worlds and bizarre hybrid forms. Michals invites the viewer to follow him on the exciting journey to the private sphere of an artist who at the time inspired and intimidated him. The still lifes taken in Margritte's house and the portraits of the inhabitants, Margritte and his wife, are distant and intimate, private and representative, humorous and calm at the same time. They reflect the high respect the man behind the camera felt for the subjects of his pictures." --Publisher description

Duane Michals by Duane Michals( Visual )

17 editions published between 1978 and 1998 in 3 languages and held by 148 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

While he has worked in commercial photography, as an artist Duane Michals is intent on expressing ideas -- desire, time, youth, death -- as opposed to capturing images, using visual narratives and symbolism to convey and interpret the human condition. Michals is known for sequences of shots with a narrative theme, several of which appear in this film, and for a fascination with writing, not normally thought of as a vital element in photography. In this film, Michals invites an audience along, as he examines some of the questions that inform his art

Valentino : objects of couture by Valentino( Book )

2 editions published in 2013 in English and held by 58 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"With specially commissioned photography, this unprecedented volume celebrates a legacy of accessories design by the legendary couture house of Valentino. This lavish tribute to the couture house of Valentino's accessories line is exceptionally timely: since the long-time accessories team, Maria Grazia Chiuri and Pierpaolo Piccioli, took over as the creative directors for Valentino in 2008, the house has experienced record-breaking success and received international acclaim. Known for their daring approach redefining femininity, Chiuri and Piccioli's continuance of accessories design has only magnified the line's popularity. Equally important is Chiuri and Piccioli's transformation of traditional Italian handcraftsmanship into a new international barometer of glamorous design. By infusing the highest quality materials and crafts with streetwise attitude, their accessories have become some of the most coveted items in the fashion world. Valentino: Objects of Couture showcases commissioned images and artworks by various well-known artists -- David Bailey, Luisa Lambri, Nobuyoshi Araki, Duane Michals, Scheltens & Abbenes, Philip Lorca di Corcia and Douglas Gordon -- of over 300 of the house of Valentino's most well-known accessory designs. Art directed by REM-Ruini e Mariotti and along with an insightful essay by the art curator Francesco Bonami, this work presents a rich volume in celebration of Valentino's exquisitely designed collections. This book is perfect for devotees of fashion, style, photography, and glamour, and also anyone who understands that a Valentino handbag or heels, even when paired with jeans, is statement-worthy", viewed November 21, 2013

Duane Michals: The Man Who Invented Himself by Camille Guichard( Visual )

5 editions published between 2012 and 2014 in English and held by 50 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Photographe américain de renom, Duane Michals a su s'imposer par son travail élégant, composé de mises en scènes oniriques et narratives fidèles à sa vision surréaliste de la photographie. Une de ses spécificités est d'assembler ses images en récits, formant ainsi de petites séquences en les accompagnant de textes écrits à la main. Duane Michals revient sur trois lieux qui l'ont marqué : Pittsburgh, ville de son enfance, New York, ville essentielle au coeur de sa création et la campagne de cambridge. Au cours de ses pérégrinations, Duane nous parle de l'amour, du désir et de la sexualité, de la mort et de l'au-delà... [jaquette]
