PHOTOGRAPHY | An Evening with Albert Watson
Fine art and fashion photographer Albert Watson has been creating through a lens for over 40 years, with his greatest successes having appeared on the covers of Vogue, Rolling Stone and TIME Magazine. The iconic work of the Scottish artist will be examined when Watson presents an hour-long slideshow and discussion of his images at the Berkeley Church tonight. Not only will he cover famous images of rock stars and celebrities, but also the work in his books, which he will be signing at the event. The discussion coincides with the launch of Albert Watson: Archive at Izzy Gallery (106 Yorkville Avenue), which opens November 1st.
