Format: Hardcover
'UFO', or 'Unified Fashion Objectives', is a long-awaited look back over Albert Watson's stellar photographic career. It is a monumental book, with over 400 oversize pages and clean design by Werner Jeker (which is reminiscent of, but calmer and less distracting than, David Carson Design's work on Cyclops). Gail Buckland provides an insightful foreword. The reproductions are excellent; predominantly full bleed, occasionally isolated on pristine white, his work has the production values it deserves.

The book focusses mainly on Watson's beauty and fashion work, from catalogues shot in the early seventies to editorial shoots for the world's best magazines such as Italian, French, German and British Vogue, Interview, Elle and Rolling Stone. Much of the published work, such as that for Stern and Per Lui, may well be previously unknown to international readers. There are casually chic mises en scene and elaborate studio set-ups; stark, graphic and incisive studies; sumptuous nudes. The mood moves from edgy to romantic, lush and saturated to the rigorously ascetic, sculptural to painterly. The range is extraordinary, yet the book has a coherence of vision that is remarkable.

There are memorable portraits here too, of the beautiful and famous, and also of unknowns and even cars (Watson's wonderful images of automobiles always feel more like portraiture than anything else). There is much for the star spotter to enjoy; Michael Jackson, Liv Tyler, David Bowie, Uma Thurman, Beyoncé, Sean Penn, Cate Blanchett, Prince, Jack Nicholson, John Travolta and Johnny Depp have never looked so good... a personal favourite of Joan Didion's hands is supremely elegant.

Watson also makes still lives to rival Penn.

I love this book but unfortunately the cover is very fragile and got damaged in the mail... I love Albert Watson's work and the book is full of great photos!

Again a fantastic book for THE MASTER ALbert Watson, but the plastic slip cover arrived broken and I had to return - am still waiting to see what condition it will arrive in. Am so disappointed by the lack of care that Amazon use when packing such great items. It's almost insulting to the artists.
