Marcel Duchamp en casa // Marcel Duchamp at home (by Duane Michals, 1962)

“A medida que envejezco, mientras todavía tengo tiempo, anhelo conocer ahora, más que nunca, mi verdadero yo, esa cosa aleatoria e ilusoria, decorada con la personalidad. Nosotros creemos ser este caleidoscopio de pasiones y distracciones. Somos un momento brillante y desconocido, suspendido entre la memoria y la anticipación, ansioso en nuestras incertidumbres, y condenado a desaparecer con nuestra conciencia. ¿Cómo puede tal misterio ser fotografiado? ¿Qué queda para nosotros, excepto el asombro?”

(Duane Michals, en ‘Yo soy mucho más bonito que mi rostro, y otros pensamientos sobre el retrato’ – de Los Angeles Times, 1989)

“As I age, while I still have time, I yearn to know now, more than ever, my true self, that random and illusive thing, decorated with personality. We believe ourselves to be this kaleidoscope of passions and distractions. We are a brilliant and unknown moment, suspended between memory and anticipation, anxious in our uncertainties, and doomed to fade with our consciousness. How can such a mystery be photographed? What is left for us but amazement?”

(Duane Michals, in ‘I Am Much Nicer Than My Face: and other thoughts about portraiture’ – from Los Angeles Times, 1989)
