Tim Soter just self-published a book about Duane Michals, titled “TIM! GO AWAY!” .
“TIM! GO AWAY!” is a project exploring my obsession with photographer/artist Duane Michals. The book contains my letters written to Michals, samples of his handwriting and detailed stories relating this infatuation, plus photographs shot during his workshop, his gallery openings, plus photos of my collection of his thirty three individual book titles. This book is full of funny stories recounting my methods of stalking one’s hero into a real friendship. Ultimately the book becomes a self-portrait and a way to explore the connection that some artists have with the mentors in their field, whether they meet them in real life or not.
