Duane Michals is a young man of almost 80 years old and most of all one of the american Master of Photography. He works as a storyteller by incorporating handwritten texts which adds another dimension to the images' meaning. Duane Michals always balances fragility and strength, gravity and humour. The film will follow him in his favorite locations (Pittsburgh, New York, Vermont) through his themes which are universal as love, desire, death, and immortality.
