Inside Seth Meyers's Office With Douglas Friedman and People
People magazine sent Douglas Friedman to 30 Rockefeller Plaza to capture newly installed "Late Night" host Seth Meyers in his new office. "Seth is so charming and extremely funny," remarked Friedman. "His delivery during the most mundane conversations – like the back and forth between photographer and subject – made me laugh, and I certainly understand why he has his own talk show ... a very important talk show, at that."
Friedman brought "a lot more equipment than we could use, set up most of it, perfected the lighting, and introduced Seth to the space," he said of his process. "I try to work within the parameters – the crop of the magazine – and squeeze as much information into the picture as I can without changing the identity of the room."
"It was interesting to peek through his bookshelves and see the items he saves," Friedman added. The comedian told People: "I can only take credit for everything that looks chintzy and cheap … as far as everything that's nice, that's my sister-in-law," an interior designer who revamped the place for Meyers.
