CG Watkins

CG Watkins is a fashion photographer based in Paris. Born in West London, Watkins was very impacted by skate and music subcultures and documentary-style photography. He has shot for many major publications and companies such as i-D, Dazed & Confused, Novembre Magazine, Nike, Adidas, and many more.

Watkins’ photos provide us with compelling stores, many of which center around a protagonist attempting a diversion or escape into the unknown. There is something luminous about Watkins’ works, both in their literal incandescent illumination as well as their foray into a brilliant world full of unfamiliar territory quite outside of the mundaneness Watkins’ encountered in the suburbs he grew up in. His documentary-like photography, through dazzling colors and immense lighting, allows the fantasy to become the real.
