Albert Watson (Scottish, born 1942)
Born in Edinburgh, Watson grew up in Penicuik. He has since become one of the world’s most successful fashion photographers, with his images gracing the cover of over 200 editions of ‘Vogue’. He studied graphic design at Duncan of Jordanstone College of Art and Design, followed by film and TV at the Royal College of Art, London. His career as a photographer took off in the early-1970s. His unique style quickly put him in demand with the likes of ‘Harpers Bazaar’ and ‘GQ’. In 1976 he moved to New York and received his first commission from ‘Vogue’. Alongside magazine photography, Watson has produced images for advertising campaigns, film posters and directed TV commercials. Although blind in one eye since birth, Watson’s photographs are some of the most striking of the past forty years.
