The Albert Watson: Visions feat. Cotton made in Africa exhibition will be held from 14 September 2012 to 6 January 2013 in the House of Photography at the Deichtorhallen Hamburg. The exhibit consists of two parts: Albert Watson's newly created photographs of Benin from December 2011 comprise its heart. They depict smallholder farmers who work with the Cotton made in Africa initiative and their living environments in order to visualize the social effects of the initiative.
Alongside the current photographic fruit of his trip round Benin, various rooms are dedicated to a retrospective of early work groups, mainly small-format vintage prints that Watson himself made in the darkroom. In the extraordinary architecture of Haus der Photographie, fashion and lifestyle images are presented in a new way alongside incisive, powerfully energetic landscape and portrait shots as well as still lifes from Morocco, Las Vegas and the world of the Benin cotton farmers.
The exhibition will be curated by Ingo Taubhorn (House of Photography). Besides two of the Cotton made in Africa retail partners, OTTO and Tom Tailor, the Deutsche Gesellschaft für Internationale Zusammenarbeit (GIZ) is another important sponsor of the project.
