The God Effect: an interview with John Cliett
Cool interview with photographer Cliett, from Cabinet Magazine: On November 1, 1977, Walter De Maria completed The Lightning Field, a monumental array of 400 polished stainless steel poles arranged in a rectangular grid roughly one mile by one kilometer in size. The following year, New York-based photographer John Cliett moved to site of the work, in the remote western New Mexico countryside near the town of Quemado, and spent the summer taking pictures of it. Over the next few months—and during another stay the next year—Cliett would shoot hundreds of pictures of The Lightning Field. Here.
