'KAOS' Opening Creates Chaos on Beverly Boulevard
“I’m always trying to make every shot monumental.”
--- Albert Watson
It was standing-room only on Oct. 19 at the Taschen Gallery (8070 Beverly Blvd., Los Angeles) for the opening of KAOS, an exhibit of photographs by Scottish photographer Albert Watson, best known for his fashion, celebrity and art photography. The opening coincided with the release of Watson’s big coffee table book, KAOS. The limited-edition book, published by Taschen, is black, faux-fur covered and signed by the artist.
The photo exhibition showcases 40 years of Watson’s work, including his iconic portraits of Michael Jackson, Andy Warhol and Christy Turlington. The show also includes some of his still-life photos and large-scale landscapes. In all, 33 prints are currently on view at Taschen. The exhibit marks Watson’s largest solo show since the mid ’90s.
