Albert Watson was born in 1942 and brought up in Edinburgh. He left to study graphic design in Dundee and then took film and television courses at the Royal College of Arts in London. Blind in one eye from birth, he nevertheless chose to invest in photography. In 1970, he moved to the United States and very quickly his style will assert itself and attract the attention of fashion magazines such as GQ and Harper’s Bazaar. He moved to New York in 1976, after landing his first job at Vogue. He will then produce many portraits of celebrities and more than a hundred advertising campaigns for major brands. Despite this vast activity, he also devotes himself to more personal projects inspired by his many travels, from Marrakech to Las Vegas, from Scotland to Benin. These free creations, as well as portraits, fashion and advertising photos, are regularly exhibited in galleries and museums around the world.
