np, profusely illustrated in quadratone illustrations. Separations by Richard Benson. Designed by David Carson. This lavishly produced first book of Albert Watson's is an elaborate collaboration between the esteemed Scottish photographer, publisher Nicholas Callaway, Carson, Benson, and artist Jeff Koons. The title "Cyclops" wryly acknowledges Watson's lack of sight in one eye, and it is filled with lush, monochromatic fashion images and celebrity portraits. A most handsome example of the oversized first hardbound edition (cited on pages 362-363 of The Hasselblad Center's "The Open Book") additionally BOLDLY SIGNED AND DATED "Albert Watson L.A. 94." in the year of publication vertically in thick gold marker across the entire title page along with a discreet three line non-authorial presentation in ink to a well-known Los Angeles creative team on the verso of the front pastedown. PLEASE NOTE: Additional shipping costs are required for this item beyond our standard rates due to its weight and value - we will inform you of the applicable amount at time of purchase.

Acerca de


This first-ever collection of photographs from one of today's most talented and versatile image makers represents a quarter of a century's worth of photographic exploration. "Watson stands in a small elite group of photographers who are constantly and internationally sought after."--American Photographer. 235 duotone photos; 5 gatefolds.

From Booklist:

Style is substance in Watson's photography--the style of fashion, faux crime, hypersex, and celebrity. There is a slightly jagged edge to his take on the world, but it is an edge safely dulled by a carefully cultivated aestheticism that makes the pictures go down easy. That said, Watson is undeniably a powerful magazine photographer whose darkly beautiful images (reproduced herein by Agfa's new CristalRaser technology) glisten with seductively described surfaces. His subjects range from travel photos of Marrakesh to celebrity portraits to fashion fiction (in a lengthy "Malcolm X Fashion Story"). Interspersed--and perhaps constituting the book's central thread--are strange object-portraits of Moroccan fetishes and other, more contemporary fetish objects. The crazy quilt of typefaces used for the captions and mercifully short text might be seen as avant-garde, or more cynically as the computer work of a designer with multiple personality disorder--as style as substance, in any case. Gretchen Garner
