RichardThank you for eeing me on such short notice.
CarlsonI hope you've brought your pictures along. I see that you have. Let's get right to it. We need a new coffeetable book, and a book of photos about the United States still feels right. OK, let's take a look. Good. Very good. Family Album, U.S.A.It's an excellent title. If you had to describe the book in one sentence, how would you do it?
RichardWell, I'd describe it as a book which is a ... a portait of the United States-the places, the people-mostly the people. The things they do, the ways they live, the placesd they visit, and the landmarks. A photographic journey.
CarlsonThese are wounderful-these photos in your pen arts section. Carnegie Hall, Lincoln Center.
RichardI'm glad you like them.
CarlsonI do, but...
CarlsonThere's something missing. You've got a good eye, Richard. You're a terrific photographer.But before I can publish your work. I need to meet with my marketing department, and you've got to do one more thing.
RichardWhat's that, Mr. Carlson?
CarlsonIn the section on culture, you've included performing arts centers, but you've left out street performance.The mimes. The musicians.The dancers-in the parks and on the streets. Richard, if you go out and photograph street performances in the city, you'll have it.
RichardThat is a great ieda.The performing arts centers and the street performances. I'll do it.
CarlsonIf you do it, I'll publish your work.
RichardAre you serious?
CarlsonI've never been more serious. When do you think you can return with street performances?
RichardA couple of weeks.
CarisonIf they're as good as the rest of these pictures, it's a deal.
RichardYou won't be disappointed, Mr.Carlson. Thanks.
CarisonGood-bye, Richard, and good luck. See you in two weeks.
RichardGood-bye, Mr. Carlson. Thanks. So if you like the street-performance photos, you'll really publish Family Album, U.S.A.?
CarlsonWhen I way something, I mean it. Go to work. Goodbye.
