From lensculture:

Michals_1“If I indulge myself and surrender to memory, I can still feel the knot of excitement that gripped me as I turned the corner into Rue Mimosas, looking for the house of Rene Magritte. It was August, 1965. I was thirty three years old and about to meet the man whose profound and witty surrealist paintings had contradicted my assumptions about photography.”
—Duane Michals

This slender book is really a joy to behold, and one can sense the photographer's excitement at meeting and collaborating with one of the most influential masters of surrealism.
