Photography fans in the Toronto area will be given a rare opportunity to spend an evening with Albert Watson, one of the world’s preeminent fine art, commercial and fashion photographers, this October 30th at
the Enoch Turner Schoolhouse The Berkeley Church, 315 Queen St. East (venue relocated to accomodate larger audience).
The event, presented in tandem by Izzy Gallery and Vistek, will kick-start Watson’s upcoming exhibit, Albert Watson: Archive, set to run from November 1 through to December 27 at the Izzy Gallery in Yorkville.
“Having Albert Watson appear at this kind of event really is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity,” says Gary Goldberg, Professional Photo Product Manager at Vistek. “We’re thrilled that Izzy Gallery has teamed up with Vistek for such an incredible event. Everyone knows Watson’s work and this chance to hear him speak about his process and his art is something every photographer will want to be a part of.”
Albert Watson has made his mark as one of the world’s most successful fashion and commercial photographers during the last four decades, while creating his own art along the way. Over the years, his striking images have appeared on more than 100 covers of Vogue around the world and been featured in countless other publications, from Rolling Stone to Time to Vibe – many of the photographs iconic portraits of rock stars, rappers, actors and other celebrities.
An Evening with Albert Watson takes place Tuesday, Oct. 30 at 7:30pm at The Berkeley Church, 315 Queen St. East. Tickets are $35 and are available at vistek.ca/go/Watson. Seating is limited.
