The well-known fashion and was Promifotograf Albert Watson for the non profit organization “cotton made in Africa” photographed where the cotton in Benin, and shows the results of this trip and some of his classics in an exhibition in Hamburg.
The idea came York photographer himself to this exhibition at Deichtorhallen, in the House of photography, but not overnight and not by the new, because really only the photo gallery from Benin should be used for a small exhibition. But Ingo Taubhorn (curator of the House of photography) was invited by Watson’s Studio and there lots of Polaroid saw BB´s and vintage prints of the artist, came the idea to make a retrospective on the legs in addition to Benin pictures.

As a result are now in the exhibition “Albert Watson – visions feat. “Cotton made in Africa”, the 14 September 2012 until 6 January 2013 for visitors will be open, to see the images be, that the artist shot in December 2011 in Benin, but also lots of unknown recordings, samples of your work, and even simple contact sheets. Fans, Albert Watson and his penchant for the fashion and celebrity world know, in this exhibition but also on his classics, like about Mick Jagger as a Leopard face, along with a goose, do not need to give Kate Moss, how she nude stretches in the desert of Morocco or Alfred Hitchcock. Even the very first series of his career, which he had recorded 1977 in-house in Calgary’s Canadian Rodeo paradise, is completely for the first time. There, at the aligned every year “Calgary Stampede”-Festival, he photographed the Cowboys in action, and the resulting recordings you can see already its safe feeling for flowing movements and the right snippets that have made him later so famous.

For his photo spread of cotton in Benin, the artist used a digital camera, which he always there again began during his 14-day tour of the country, where there was something interesting to see for the first time. Thus emerged not only photos of small farmers in the cotton, but also apparent scenes from everyday life, like women dressed in traditional costumes, a King of the region, some local rappers and more. An impressive example, how perfectly, Watson can deal with light and color management, is, for example, a Benin portrait in large format, where a girl can be seen, at their feet, and a snake winds each to its shoulders. Even if this image looks more for conventional photography, the correct incidence of light makes it a perfect and perfect composition.

Also the popular fashion blog “Two for fashion” from Hamburg stirred vigorously promote for the Albert Watson project and so, quite a few bloggers about chic Albert were able to forward Watson T-Shirts with African motifs.
