The photographer's interest in music has seen him work with Pulp, Morrissey and Snoop Dogg.

Celebrating Watson's 30 year career in the music business, the display features photographic portraits of some of the leading artists and bands from the last three decades.

Born in 1963 in Hammersmith, Watson started out as as a darkroom apprentice in Old Street, before moving onto work at London Weekend Television and contributing to the New Musical Express in his spare time in order to build up his portfolio.

After being commissioned to document the emerging New York hip hop scene in the 1980s, Watson became one the industry's most sought-after photographers and he has gone onto to work with musicians including Oasis, Pet Shop Boys, David Bowie and Grace Jones.
