WATSON WEIGHS IN: Albert Watson held court recently at Phillips de Pury in London for a show of his photographs for The Macallan Highland whisky. Guests included fellow snapper Mary McCartney, Bianca Jagger, Stephen Jones, Avery Agnelli and John Frieda. “He’s wearing the photographer’s hat,” said McCartney, who spotted Watson — and his black beret planted backwards on his head — among a clutch of guests. “There is no mistaking who the photographer is in that group, is there?” she said.
Watson said he sometimes feels less shackled doing commercial work than editorial. “Sometimes, you look at an everyday dress or jacket and think, ‘I don’t want to shoot that. I can’t shoot that.’ What you really want to shoot is a big Christmas tree of a jacket that’s fun to work with — but they don’t come along very often,” he said.
