“It is an illusion that photos are made with the camera… they are made with the eye, heart, and head.”
– Henri Cartier-Bresson

Welcome to the photography of Alfred Watson, a man whose natural ability and eye for composition resulted in an impressive portfolio of black and white photographs in a wide range of subject matter.  His goal was always the same: to create a technically flawless photograph that told a story and touched the viewer emotionally – a goal he endlessly pursued in his search for the “perfect” image.
