Duane Michals

Duane Michals is an American Photographer.


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.
