Charlie Rose the Photographers Interviews

Charlie Rose is an American TV interviewer and journalist.

Since 1991 he has hosted Charlie Rose, an interview show produced by the New York metropolitan area public television station WNET, and also distributed nationally by PBS, starting in 1993[1] and continuing as of 2008. He has concurrently been a correspondent for 60 Minutes II since its inception in 1999.

He interviewed a lot of important icons of the society from Politics to Photographers and I bring you today the acclaimed photographer Richard Avedon discussing his 50-year career capturing the images of politicians and celebrities, the rise of portraiture, and the role of humanity in photography.

He also talks about some of his more memorable experiences and his new book "An Autobiography".

This is the kind of interview that every student of photography should study. You are privileged to spend an hour with Richard Avedon, arguably the most influential photographer of the twentieth century. Take a look at the full interview video.

Another great video interview with Annie Leibovitz and some more of Richard Avedon.
