Richard Serra on Charlie Rose, the abandoned transcript
Back in the day (2001), I set my VCR to tape this interview of Richard Serra on Charlie Rose. I kept returning to it because it was so rich. I started transcribing it one night so I could share it with friends, though my computer can’t locate where it went… Google Video to the rescue.
I’ve learned as much about photography from poetry, painters and cinema than anywhere else. There’s something to be said for art ghettos, and rent’s cheap on photography’s block. It never hurts to take the train uptown and see what’s going on in sculpture, video art, or textiles, even. Even if you hate it.
There’s a great book of Serra’s words and interviews over on Amazon, if you like the direction of this.
