Nature of Desire
by Duane Michals
Publisher's Description
In this beautifully produced volume Michals' poetry is given weight equal to his photography. Michals himself writes, "I began to write poetry because of my frustration with the inherent limitations of the photograph. Photography reproduces with exquisite fidelity the appearances of things, but things are not always what they appear to be. By its nature it cannot show our true realm of experience, the invisible world of our emotions. I feel that language combined with photography helps me express myself more precisely and intimately." Through a subtle interplay of images, visual and verbal, this volume reveals "the complex nature of desire" for one's actual and would-be lovers.
