Send the model home...

Dr. Heisenberg's Magic Mirror of Uncertainty
Life is too short to be distracted by the pesky, mundane questions that plague most photographers: "How can I get this model to smile without showing her teeth?" or, "Does this house look better with or without the little red wagon in front?"
So think hard, think deep and ask new questions.
As a photographer, how can you present the nature of existence and the drama of the human condition? How will you define beauty and ugliness in visual terms? What is death and why is mankind fixated on rational explanations of the afterlife?
In short, send the models home and start asking the BIG questions.

James A. Cotter sobre Duane Michals in Photo insider

The iluminated man

"Photographers are always photographing the package," he says. "But they would never think to open up the box. Well, I'm interested in the contents, because once you start opening up the box, it's like a Chinese box, there's always another box inside - so it's limitless."

"I am what is being experienced, the universe focused in the eye of the beholder. There is a quality of sensation felt as myself, which like the "I" of the hurricane is a calm center of the storm of awareness..."

Duane Michals in Pdn Legends Online

Alice's Mirror
"I believe in the imagination. What I cannot see is infinitely more important than what I can see."

Duane Michals
