CHRISTOPHER LYON: It's June 7th, 2016. This is an interview of Duane Michals, at his home in New York City.
DUANE MICHALS: Yes. Welcome.
MR. LYON: [Laughs.] Thank you for sitting down for this. I wondered if we could ease into this a little bit by just talking about your home that you grew up in McKeesport, with the sense that so much of your childhood in one way or another has informed your art, or I should perhaps say your family relationships have been a big part of your art. [Phone rings.] Well, that was a mistake.
MR. MICHALS: That was not the answer.
