The Macallan Masters Of Photography
“The Macallan Masters of Photography: Albert Watson Edition” exhibition launched on June 2
Club Lusitano was the venue for the arrival in Hong Kong of “The Macallan Masters of Photography: Albert Watson Edition” exhibition on June 2. This special evening was the final leg of a world tour that kicked off with a debut showing in London in 2010 and has since travelled to Moscow, New York, Paris, Taiwan, Singapore, Seoul, and Madrid.
Albert Watson is perhaps the most successful fashion photographer of all time, with over 200 Vogue covers to his credit. He has also published several influential and successful books featuring his unique art images. For the Macallan Edition, he followed the journey of the casks which give The Macallan its unique flavour, visiting the forests of northern Spain, where the mighty Spanish oaks grow, to the traditional cooperage in Jerez, culminating in the alchemy and passion of The Macallan Distillery in Scotland.
To celebrate this memorable exhibition and global tour, an extremely limited collection of 1,000 box sets featuring a bottle of The Macallan Sherry Oak 20 year old whisky are available for purchase worldwide. Each comes with a specially commissioned set of 10 portfolio prints from this edition. They can be purchased at luxury spirits retailers for a recommended retail price of £700 (HK$8,999). A further 36 individually customized bottles of The Macallan 1946 whisky – the date Watson first met his wife Elizabeth – with a signed one-off collectible platinum print can also be purchased. These come with a reserve price of £10,000.
