This work in another form was shown at The New York Film Festival in 1982. It still remains, for me, a study in indecision. "The Sweethearts" are emblematic of that thing that can exist between couples, when one can not assume the persona of the other. Adopting the form of a flip book, "Sweethearts" presents a sequence of film stills which segue through a series of theatrical moments set on a domestic stage. The actors appear in banal moments of daily life and animated moments of conflict to offer an intimate exploration of the vagaries of love and life.Diana Michener was born in Boston in April 1940. She studied at the New School in New York City with Lisette Model and at a workshop in Yosemite with Ansel Adams. In 2001, the Maison Europeenne de la Photographie exhibited a large survey exhibition of her work entitled "Silence Me". A catalogue of the same name accompanied the exhibition. Michener lives and works in Paris and New York, and is represented by Pace MacGill, New York. In 2005 Steidl published her award winning book "Dogs, Fires, Me".
