Duane Michals, Photo Sequences

This is Duane Michals’ photo sequence “The Human Condition” (1969).

The sequence of 6 images show a man on a train platform gradually disappearing into a column of light until this light becomes a galaxy in space.

 

Jim Goldburg

USA, Hollywood, California. 1991. “Friday ?”

This image is from Goldburg’s book “Raised By Wolves”.

The image shows a young man balancing on a hill high above Hollywood. The image is slightly out of focus giving it a dream like feeling and ambiguity. Opposite the figure there is a roughly written letter.

The letter is written to the Father of the subject;

“Dad, I’m sorry about losing control of myself and hurting you”

Photographs often do not tell the truth. I am inspired by this image as I am interested in bringing images and words together.
