ALBERT WATSON in GRAPHIS No. 363
GRAPHIS | 2020
Introduction by Michael Comeau: Albert Watson might be the world’s greatest living photographer. Armed with an education in graphic design and film, Albert has been breaking the rules of photography for nearly 50 years. His body of work is best described as intimidating. In a world of specialists, he has created iconic pictures in virtually every genre, including portraiture, fashion, landscapes, and still life. Even more unusually, his visual fingerprint can be seen in every image he produces. That fingerprint is an uncommon dedication to visual excellence, determined by his taste. That could mean lighting a supermodel with a sharp beam of hard light. Or focusing on a boxer's neck. Or even handing a gun to a chimp. https://www.graphis.com/store_/product/journal-363/

Juxtapoz - Albert Watson: The Light Behind the Lens @ SCAD FASH Museum of Fashion + Film
VARIOUS PUBLICATIONS | 2021
There are portraits and there are moments in time. Albert Watson captured the latter, an instantaneous time-traveling, era-defining photographer who challenged the ways we looked at portraiture and fine art photography. Often, those ideas crossed over in his work. Sometimes, we have grown accustomed to Andy Warhol and Kate Moss as icons, so often posed and channeling a unique energy that is almost palpable to the senses. But the reasons we feel that way often have to do with the photographer, and Watson (who shot the two legendary figures and others for the likes TIME magazine, Rolling Stone, and Harper’s Bazaar and over 100 Vogue covers) conveys a sense of larger than life experimentation that transcends common fashion photography.

In what is a very long overdue survey, the Savannah College of Art and Design's FASH Museum of Fashion + Film presents Albert Watson: The Light Behind the Lens, Watson’s first solo U.S. museum exhibition. Seen as a whole, the more than 50 works showcase Watson's incredible and groundbreaking use of light and shadow, which was guided by his early studies in graphic design and film. Perhaps that is what has made Watson so unique, spoke of in the same breath as Avedon and others, is that he pushed the photography medium to new heights and possibilities. Watson once said that "Really good portraiture is a two-way street where someone is throwing little gems out and you're grabbing them." The irony is that Watson has spent a lifetime throwing those gems back at his subjects, and the harmonious relationship continues to thrive. —Evan Pricco
