We’ve just learned that a recent number of the Japanese publication, Photographers’ Gallery Press (no. 9), includes a long interview with Michael Fried about his recent work on photography, in particular his Why Photography Matters as Art as Never Before (Yale Univ. Press, 2008). Prof. Fried has mentioned to me that he was impressed by the thoughtfulness of the interviewer, Yoshiaki Kai, so I think this is an interview well worth tracking down. I haven’t managed to get my hands on a copy, but I wanted to let our readers know, since I know many of you, like me, have a deep interest in Fried’s work.
