Albert Watson: The 20th Anniversary of Cyclops


Hasted Kraeutler presents Cyclops, an exhibition of rare, unique vintage photographs by Albert Watson, beginning October 25 and running through December 8, 2012. The works in this exhibition celebrate the 20th anniversary of Cyclops (Callaway Editions, 1994), which was the first major monograph of the artist’s photographs. The title, Cyclops, refers to Albert Watson’s single-minded, distinctive style, and a light hearted reference to the fact that he was blind in one eye since birth. 
Cyclops will exhibit unique vintage platinum and silver prints by the artist, spanning 40 years of the photographer’s career. One of a kind prints from the original selection for the book will be on view, including Road Kill, a series rarely exhibited. 
Francis Hodgson has notably written in the Financial Times (2011) about Watson’s vintage prints, which he describes as “astonishing...He is just a brilliant photographer. The fundamental and superficial appeal that all photographers have, of light crashing on to surfaces or kissing them, is the very one that he has mastered. Looking at his photographs is a pleasure in textures and devil take the rest.”
