――― In venue ―――

For over 30 years Simon Watson has exhibited his photographs in Europe and the U.S. including solo shows at the late Richard Anderson Gallery in New York and the Auschwitz Museum in Poland. More recently he has shown his paintings at the Galerie Rideau de Fer in France. His work is included in museums, public and private collections worldwide. Watson has been a regular contributor to The New York Times T Magazine, W Magazine, Vogue, Vanity Fair and many other titles worldwide. His recent book The Lives of Others was published by Rizzoli in 2020.

In his next book, Portrait of a House, Watson explores an eighteenth-century Georgian house on Dublin’s storied Henrietta Street. The house has a history of transformation, from the grand city home of wealthy merchants to the inner-city tenement dwelling for the poverty stricken. In a gentle Proustian fashion, the house reveals a quiet melancholy and the slow passing of time. The photographs in this volume were made over several years. The work is intended to be a poetic and intimate portrait. It will be published by Dürer Editions in October 2021 in conjunction with an exhibition at Kevin Kavanagh in Dublin.
