"Photographers tend not to photograph what they can't see, which is the very reason one should try to attempt it. Otherwise we're going to go on forever just photographing more faces and more rooms and more places. Photography has to transcend description. It has to go beyond description to bring insight into the subject, or reveal the subject, not as it looks, but how does it feel?"
"I don't trust reality. So all of the writing on and painting on the photographs is born out of the frustration to express what you do not see."
Duane Michals, Grandpa Goes to Heaven, 1989; A Letter from My Father, 1960/1975.
