EXHIBITIONS

Albert Watson, born in 1942 in Edinburgh, Scotland, immigrated to the United States in 1970 and is now based in New York. During his almost five decades behind the camera, he has created a body of work and a diversity of photographs that are unparalleled. From portraits of Alfred Hitchcock and Steve Jobs, beauty shots of Kate Moss, to Las Vegas landscapes and pictures of monkeys, Watson has blended art, fashion and commercial photography into some of the most iconic images ever seen.


Over the years, Albert Watson's photographs have also appeared on more than 100 covers of Vogue worldwide and been featured in countless other publications, from Rolling Stone to Time to Harper's Bazaar - many of the photographs are fashion shots or portraits of rock stars, rappers, actors and other celebrities. He also has created the photography for hundreds of ad campaigns for major companies, such as Prada, Levi's, Revlon and Chanel. He has shot dozens of Hollywood movie posters, such as "Kill Bill" and "Memoirs of a Geisha" and has also directed more than 100 TV commercials.


Recently, Queen Elizabeth II awarded Albert Watson an Order of the British Empire (OBE) for his lifetime contribution to the art of photography.



Janus is the roman god of the beginnings and the ends, he is also the god of the doors and the choices.

This exhibition is a way to present the diversity of Albert Watson's work while revealing the unity of his art.

An occasion to insist on the idea that humanity is not univocal. It is like the roman god Janus, who has two faces.

The one who pretends to define Humanity with a single side is mistaken.

The beauty of photography lies in this ambivalence between document and fiction.
