About

NICK KNIGHT (*1958, Great Britain) Ming Xi wearing Chanel Haute Couture 2011 Hand-coated pigment print Sheet 176.2 x 111.7 cm (30 x 44 in.) Edition of 10, plus 2 AP; Ed. no. 1/10 Print only Nick Knight is among the world’s most influential and visionary photographers. He has worked on a range of often controversial issues during his career – from racism, disability, ageism, and more recently fat-ism. He continually challenges conventional ideals of beauty. Knight made fashion history in November 1993 by adapting ring-flash photography to capture Linda Evangelista for a landmark, post-grunge cover of British Vogue. Since then, his work has graced no fewer than 36 covers. He has shot advertising campaigns for Jil Sander, Louis Vuitton, Calvin Klein, Yves Saint Laurent, Vivienne Westwood, Alexander McQueen and Christian Dior to name a few. He has also shot record covers for David Bowie, Paul Weller, George Michael and Massive Attack. Knight’s work has been exhibited at institutions such as the Victoria & Albert Museum, Saatchi Gallery, The Photographers’ Gallery, the Hayward Gallery and recently the Tate Modern. Knight has also turned his hand to directing music videos - Pagean Poetry by Björk in 2001 being his first and, most recently, Kanye West’s Bound 2. He directed the video for Lady Gaga’s hit single Born This Way in 2011. Both the song and the video aimed to empower and show solidarity within minority groups, a common theme in Knight’s work. The work is one of a recently published series of prints that took 10 years to produce due to the long development process they triggered. Inspired by 16th century still lifes, Knight applied various techniques such as heat and exposure to a photograph during the developing process, creating a picture with a wonderful effect in which the colours seemed to magically merge and develop a life of their own. Knight began this project when he and his wife were given access to the barium of the Natural History Museum in 1993 for his installation "Plant Power" Flora. From the 6 million different species available (it took him 3 years to sift through them all) he made a final selection of 46 specimens and almost 15 years later decided to publish 15 pictures of them for us to view and enjoy. Scroll through our slide show to see the fascinating effects of his wonderful oeuvre. – Nick Knight, Photography, Fashion, Colour, People, Movement, Dance, Dress, Woman, Glamour
