Albert Watson is one of the world's most successful and sought-after fashion photographers working today. The artist is known for graphic, sculptural images that capture the essence of people, places, and things.
Over the past thirty-five years his striking portraits have appeared on more than 250 covers of Vogue; Watson has produced photographs of many of the iconic figures of our time, including Kate Moss, Naomi Campbell, Alfred Hitchcock, Jack Nicholson and that shot of Mick Jagger.
More than simply a straightforward fashion photographer, Watson's images are informed by his work as a graphic designer and have a filmic quality; his work is often said to defy any simple categorisation as he bends and weaves different genres together.
Since 2004, Watson has had solo shows at the Museum of Modern Art in Milan, Italy; the KunstHausWien in Vienna, Austria; the City Art Centre in Edinburgh; the Foto Museum in Antwerp, Belgium; and the NRW Forum in Düsseldorf, Germany.
Watson’s photographs have also been featured in many group shows at museums, including the National Portrait Gallery in London, the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York, the Pushkin Museum of Fine Arts in Moscow, the International Center of Photography in New York, and the Deichtorhallen in Hamburg, Germany.
Watson was awarded The Royal Photographic Society's Centenary Medal - in recognition of his sustained and significant contribution to photography.
His photographs are included in the permanent collections at the National Portrait Gallery and the Metropolitan Museum of Art.
