In the nonsensical tradition of limericks, Duane Michals provides humorous and bawdy context to his photography in ‘Esta.’ Relating a narrative about a young woman’s ability to wear a hat, the work is salacious in both composition and text.

Initially exploring graphic design, Duane Michals (American, b. 1932) shifted his focus to photography in the late 1950s. He frequently includes poetic captions beneath his works, which are often arranged in series, evocative of filmstrips. Indicative of his remarkable career, Michals’s first solo exhibition was at The Museum of Modern Art, New York in 1970. His photographs appear in numerous public collections including the J. Paul Getty Museum, Los Angeles; Moderna Museet, Stockholm; and the National Museum of Modern Art, Kyoto.
