Albert Watson

I went to the Private View Berty had last month at Hamiltons. (Thats right I know everyone) and enjoyed it very much. Not just because of the wine, and not because I had some nice friends there and met some equally nice people. It was because this photographer who had had the biggest influence (and I mean it this time) on everyone I studied with could still pull off a great show of work of the highest quality. His night shots (see above) where right on the money in every respect and I loved these as much as I did his early black and white (which got me excited about black and white printing)
Its good when photographers keep up with the younger lot and don't rely on there early work. He was a master then and is an even greater master now
