From May 19 Kahmann Gallery will present 30 pictures of world know and icon photographer Albert Watson. 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.

Albert also has created the photography for hundreds of successful ad campaigns for major companies, such as Prada, the Gap, IBM, Levi’s, Revlon and Chanel, and he has directed more than 200 TV commercials and shot dozens of posters for major Hollywood movies. All the while, Albert has spent much of his time working on personal projects, creating stunning images from his travels and interests, from Marrakech to Las Vegas to the Orkneys. Much of this work, along with his well-known portraits and fashion photographs, has been featured in museum and gallery shows worldwide. The photo industry bible, Photo District News, named Albert one of the 20 most influential photographers of all time.

Kahmann Gallery
embodies all that is photography. Founded in 2005, HUP Gallery was due to change its name to Kahmann Gallery in 2009. While the original concept was to focus purely on Dutch photographers, the scope has broadened over time to include equal volumes of work from international photographers. Kahmann Gallery will remain a specialist in the sale of unique photography that has either made history or will most likely do so.

Kahmann Gallery presents a beautiful mix between vintage and contemporary photography. Besides a large vintage print collection (1930 - 1970) the gallery represents the work of 19 national and international photographers. Kahmann Gallery initiates about 6 exhibitions a year, cooperates with various international galleries and museums and participates in international art fairs. The gallery also acts as an art dealer and advisor for the acquisition of photography for company collections.
