Documentary on Albert Watson's creative process
« on: July 31, 2012, 12:09:50 PM »

If you don't already know who Albert Watson is: get introduced.

If you already admire his work be prepared to dive deeper into the entire creative process of an ad campaign and how Watson thinks about what a photograph can be, and how he and a crew of assistants, stylists, set builders, art directors and creative directors.

It all starts with an idea...

It is also a well done short documentary.

Thanks for the link - I've admired Watson for quite a few years. I used to have a documentary about him on videotape, but that's long gone. Another chap whose future happened to hinge on his wife! Aren't they wonderful creatures?

Oh my...such a creative and well produced video!

YES, I like Watson's work, however, this video is a 'work' onto its-self...

THANKS for posting the link Ellis. Post more...

(i do wish i could wear a hat like that...)

Thank you for the link, Ellis. Watson was one of my favourite photographers in the early '90s... :)
