Watson originally studied graphic design, then went on to study film and television at the Royal College of Art.

He say’s “If you look closely, you can see that my images are full of graphic design,” he says. “They’re very carefully framed; the shapes within the images are carefully controlled.” Albert Watson

Being a fan of Albert Watson’s work since the early 80’s, I really enjoyed putting this selection together, there were so many great images that I wanted to show you – you can check them out for yourselves on – Albert’s son Aaron says – “Albert is like a mad scientist shooting/creating new work all of the time”. Which is great news us Watson fans!
