Albert Watson

Albert Watson is renowned for his fashion, celebrity and fine art photography. He has shot over 100 covers for Vogue and 40 for Rolling Stone magazine since the 1970s. He has been acclaimed as one of the 20 most influential photographers of all time alongside Richard Avedon and Irving Penn.

Hamiltons represents Albert Watson's Polaroids and his unique vintage gelatin silver photographs.


Including some of Watson's most well-known portraits of models and actors, these unique Polaroid prints provide evidence of his meticulous working methods - they are the photographers sketches, directly highlighting the creative process linking his thoughts and vision to the final images.


Renowned photography critic Francis Hodgson commented, "It is not quite lit right and you can see that it is not the finished thing. But there is something, just a tiny hint of something personal in it that never happens in an Albert Watson. He liked this person. He wanted to get the picture and he wanted to get the woman."


Over the course of four decades Watson has become one of the world's most successful fashion and advertising photographers; over 250 of his images have graced the cover of Vogue. In this time he has also developed, with great success, a signature art form, often a rare transition from the commercial world.
