Texas 1964 represents an amazing discovery. Duane Michals, one of America’s pre-eminent photographers completed a project in 1964 to depict different aspects of the state of Texas. Michals recently discovered in his archive ‘Duane’s Texas tempest in a teapot treasure trove’, the whole brilliant and resonant portrait of that celebrated state – captivating black-and-white images published here for the first time.
Tender, witty, poignant and truthful, Duane Michals’ Texas 1964 captures a society in some ways unchanged from its first controversial settlement, with its racial divisions and economic and social gulfs, and in others redolent of the new America – commercialised, confident, forward-looking.
Texas 1964 has been designed by Peter Willberg and printed in Italy on 170gsm Gardapat Ultra by SiZ Industria Grafica,Verona.
