Texte bilingue Allemand / Anglais, illustré de 51 reproductions photographiques pleine page, 33 en noir & blanc et 18 en couleurs, par Albert Watson. Ouvrage réalisé dans le cadre de l'exposition consacrée éponyme à la Kunsthalle Rostock (Allemagne) du 21 Juillet au 1er Septembre 2002. 


    "...The range of his photographic oeuvre is as impressive as the aesthetic forcefulness and the emotional intensity of his pictures, each of which is a technical masterpiece in its own right, an icon which clamors for attention, whether it be an ad for the fashion cosmetics industry or a portrait - with his interest ranging from society models  such as Mick Jagger, Andy Warhol, Jack Nicholson and the Royals to lifers in a high security US prison -, a nude study, a still life, a reportage, a landscape or the deserts of North Africa and New Mexico... The common denominator in all this variety is Watson's curious radically innovative way of looking at the world, its beauty, its possibilities, its spectacles, its abysses. And Watson's curiosity appears to be as inexhaustible as his reputed chameleon-like changeability and the pleasure he takes in permanently inventing new pictures."
