Wonderful Ann, thank you!
thank you for the best link of the year!! what a wonderful experience!
Thank you for the post...
Thanks a lot for the post Ann, but it pains me to watch it. This interviewer is just a foul moron, he's unbearable, always talking down to Cartier-Bresson like he's senile or a child, laughing too hard, and trying to make him say "decisive moment." I don't know what's the problem with journalists interviewing major figures but they can never shut up, ask intelligent questions, and listen.
Reminds me of a French TV special I saw on Derrida. Not that I admire the man that much, but he was nevertheless in the big leagues of modern culture. The interview was almost setup like a game show, with surprise guests, music popping up at random moments, and ass-lickers saying how much their obscure and meaningless works were inspired by the Great Man.
I for one think Charlie Rose is one of the best interviewers of our time and I am extremely glad he is the one doing it.
Well, he is doing an awful job here, he is so unbearable. His interviewee does not seem to appreciate him either.
Because, interviewers use interviews to promote themselves, and more important subject they interview, journalists think more important he/she will look like...
Thanks Ann !!!
It must be the hair spray creeping into the cortex...
Might be of interest? It was a marvellous interview!
Thank you, Ann!
I *loved* every second of this interview ... whether or not Rose did a "good" job. Rose's technique matters little: Henri Cariter-Bresson's responses, and the projection of his "inner being" ("anarchist... finally reducing "anarchism" to "love") was marvelous.
Especially, when Rose asked him, "Why don't you accept the fact that you are a great (the greatest?) photographer?" - and Cartier-Bresson answered him, "Because it is not true. I have a camera, and I use it."
One really significant quote from HCB: "Everything worth knowing cannot be taught."
Rose: "What makes a great photograph?"
HCB: "Geometry, and everything in the right place ... and ...."
Rose: "You don't know?"
HCB: "No, I don't know,"
Rose: "And it can't be taught?"
HCB: "No. It can't be taught"
The DVD "Henri Cartier-Bresson: The Impassioned Eye" has a great deal more of the impish HCB - I found it much more enjoyable than the Charlie Rose interview.
