Albert Watson photograph “Alfred Hitchcock, Los Angeles, 1973.” It’s Hitchcock’s birthday today, born Aug. 13, 1899. This photo is an outtake from Albert’s shoot with the director. (Swipe left to see the more well-known photo from the 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. And after the shoot, they sat down and had tea together. One of the portraits ran in the Christmas/holiday issue of Harper’s Bazaar magazine with the headline: “Alfred Hitchcock Cooks His Goose.”
