Alfred Hitchcock, Los Angeles (Contact)

Archival Pigment Photograph

Signed, titled, dated and numbered (edition of 10) on artist’s signature label on verso.

Albert Watson print “Alfred Hitchcock, Los Angeles, 1973,” from Albert’s “Contact” series. Hitchcock was the first big celebrity Albert ever photographed, and Albert was newly out of film school at the Royal College of Art in London. So, the chance to photograph one of the greatest directors of all time was a huge opportunity and honor for Albert. And after the shoot, they sat down and had tea together. Surreal! One of the portraits ran in the Christmas/holiday issue of Harper’s Bazaar magazine with the headline: “Alfred Hitchcock Cooks His Goose.”
