Image Research

Duane Michals

If you look at this image in the correct order it looks very odd, it definitely caught me out, i honestly didn't expect it to pan out like it does. I like how it ends how it begins, the idea of it going full circle. I like how it doesn't give itself away that it is going to be all funny and strange. It just emphasizes how with images what you see isn't always what you get and although the camera doesn't lie the photographer does. Michals is creating this sense of a world where nothing is truly what it seems and i like that, I like how the images seem to just naturally flow and with each one Michals reveals a little more of the story. The series is a little bit twilight zone like or alice in wonderland or another of those acid trip films.
