Join us in the second floor Art Department as Duane Michals talks about his book Portraits, does a Q&A, and signs! The editor of Portraits, Christopher Lyon, will sit down with Duane to discuss the new collection.

Duane Michals: Portraits presents a beautiful overview of more than a half-century of portrait photographs, many of iconic cultural figures, by one of today's most innovative photographers.

For decades, Michals was a sought-after editorial photographer for leading magazines, capturing outstanding creative personalities of our era in pictures. This selection of portraits, many not previously published in book form, is accompanied by Michals’ observations and reminiscences. The book features images of performers such as Barbra Streisand, Johnny Cash, Robin Williams, Tilda Swinton, Andy Warhol, David Hockney, John Cheever, René Magritte, and Balthus.

PLEASE NOTE: Duane Michals will pre-sign all copies of Portraits in advance. Customers who wish to have their copy personalized may do so after the event. Only copies of Portraits purchased at the event will be personalized. Mr. Michals will not sign other monographs or memorabilia.
