This essay a close reading of the Duane Michals' photograph ‘This is My Proof’. It discusses the ways in which Michals works creatively with the tension between evoking an emotional reality and expressing a consciousness about the mediating processes involved in that evocation. Offering two readings of desire within the photograph, the essay outlines how these readings reflect upon the processes of interpretation and their relation to the impulse of desire itself.
