Inspiration - Dr. Duanus Quotes

My friends took notes during the Duane Michals lecture at the Medium Festival of Photography and shared some great quotes with me. Enjoy.

My favorite is "I think about thinking". What's your favorite quote?

Everything in photography is a subject;
Especially the things you can't see.

Every picture is a memory I've forgotten.

Don't live life in a living room.

Schools should teach amazement, not stuff.

Death is (=) falling out of time

Explore the world in your head

I think about thinking

What's interesting about me is not my face, but my mind

“Photographers love houses that are falling down, but they never know who lived there,” Mr. Michals said. “Young photographers go across America to take pictures of the same filling station in Peoria, but they never see what’s close to them. It’s easy to see the exotic. But to see your own environment, it never even occurs to them.” - Duane Michals
