Albert Watson, Standing Stone, The Orkneys, Scotland, 1991

Watson studied at Duncan of Jordanstone College of Art, Dundee and the Royal College of Art, London. After moving to the United States in the 1970s, he gained a reputation as a fashion photographer working for magazines such as Vogue, The Face, Rolling Stone and Newsweek. He won a Grammy Award in 1975 for best LP cover design.

Renowned for his striking portraiture, his land- and cityscape photography is similarly bold and dramatic in approach.
