Out of Africa - in Hamburg

Share:

A trip in your mind, from Hamburg to Africa: Albert Watson’s photographs make it possible, in an exhibition at the House of Photography in Hamburg’s Deichtorhallen, open from 14th September 2012 to 6th January 2013. The exhibition, titled ‘Visions feat. Cotton made in Africa’, is held in co-operation with the Aid-by-Trade Foundation. It is a renewed attempt at curating an exhibition which comes as close as possible to encompassing the entirety of Watson’s work. At the heart of the exhibition are photographs taken in Benin in 2011, depicting the everyday lives of small-hold farmers associated with the initiative ‘Cotton made in Africa’. They are quiet observations, which take the viewer on a journey.

Albert Watson was in Scotland in 1942. He first rose to fame through his fashion photographs (including those of supermodels Kate Moss and Naomi Campbell), and his campaigns for major fashion houses. In addition, his portraits of celebrities such as David Bowie, Jack Nicholson and Mike Tyson established Watson as an icon in the genre of portrait photogaphy.
