Young Gallery Presents the Photography of Albert Watson "UFO"
"Heel, Budget Suites, Las Vegas", 2000.
BRUSSELS.- In "UFO (Unified Fashion Objectives)," Albert Watson unveils a collection of his best fashion photographs from 40 years as one of the world's leading artists in the field. Selected from his massive archives, Watson presents some of his most well-known fashion work alongside images that have never been presented to the public before.

The show includes the haunting portrait "Kate Moss in Torn Veil, Marrakech, 1993" and the classic fashion shot "Gisella, Paris, 1990," shot in the Jardin des Tuileries. The clothes of designers such as Prada, Chanel, Armani, Valentino, Issey Miyake and Yohji Yamamoto are featured on models in Watson's distinct and powerfully graphic style in a series of limited-edition, black and white prints.

These masterpieces of fashion photography also offer a preview of Watson's upcoming book "UFO," to be published in fall 2010 by PQ Blackwell.

Watson has photographed more than 200 covers of Vogue magazine worldwide during his career, and also worked for many years for other top fashion magazines, such as Harper's Bazaar, Elle and Mademoiselle. He also photographed the collections in Paris and Milan for 25 years.

Watson, known as a master of lighting and printing, has won numerous honors, including three Andy Awards for advertising, a lifetime achievement Lucie Award and even a Grammy. Photo District News, the industry bible, named Watson one of the 20 most influential photographers of all time, along with Richard Avedon and Irving Penn among others. Watson was born in Edinburgh, Scotland, and immigrated to the United States in 1970. He has been based in New York since 1977.

The exhibition is on view at Young Gallery from February 25 through April 30, 2010.
