20 Most Influential
ALBERT WATSON
photographed by Takeshi Hanzawa, 1997

Thank God for Albert Watson. If you were to pick up your Websters and look up "generous" you'd probably find a photo of this famous Scotsman. Albert is a natural and giving teacher and not the type to leave out the ingredient that sweetens the pie either. His photographs are signature, classical and bold, and in our world of manipulation, Albert prefers the enlargers and the trays. Rolling Stone Twenty Fifth Anniversary Issue: Mick Jagger, the leopard ... HOW THE HELL DID HE DO THAT? His portraits are impenetrable, they capture the strength of his subjects and are a lesson in form and design. If you ever have a chance to see a Watson print, count on being humbled and inspired, for he is truly a master.
