Albert Watson's, fashion and ad photographer, exhibition on "Visions feat. Cotton made in Africa" that will be held at Haus der Photographie in Hamburg’s Deichtorhallen until January 6, 2013, has two sections: the Albert Watson photographs made exclusively in Benin in December 2011 form the heart of the show. They present the smallholders associated with the Cotton made in Africa initiative and introduce us to their world, thus visualizing the initiative’s social impact. Alongside the current photographic fruit of his trip round Benin, various rooms are dedicated to early work groups and classics, mainly small-format vintage prints that Watson himself made in the darkroom. This encourages viewers to actively explore Watson’s artistic strategy and the sheer breadth of the different genres, without losing sight of the roots of the various work groups.

Places in Hamburg: Mio

Relax with a good coffee, a wine spritzer, a cup of ice cream or delicious food and a magnificent view across the Alster at Mio (Jungfernstieg 58). And when it got dark you see the wonderful lights on the other side.

"Margiela for H&M": The collection

Avant-garde, timeless, strange, alienated - Martin Margiela founded the Label Maison Martin Margiela in 1988. Only his creations shall be perceived, therefore there are no pictures of the designer and he just gave interviews via fax. And also the faces of the models are always hidden or cut. Since 2009 an in-house design team is the creative leader of the company and Margiela left the Maison. The "Margiela for H&M" collection is available on November 15th:
