Michals believes that diversity of practice is essential, as ". . . Everything is a subject for photography including your own fantasies, your own truth, your own desires, your own fears. That's where you live. You don't live on the streets looking at people's faces or looking at sunsets. You live in your mind. And you know your fears more intimately. What I want from you is your secrets. That's the only thing you can give me: your secrets."
Quoted in A. D. Coleman, "Duane Michals," Camera & Darkroom, vol. 15, no. 11, (November 1993), 30.
