Nick Knight is the uber photographer and founder of ground-breaking website SHOWstudio.com – where the process of fashion and image-making are deconstructed – by setting up a shoot or a designer in their studio, then filming them and streaming the progress on the internet. Here is, chatting to camera about his mission in life and his career ‘I don’t like to be defined by the medium I work in’ and the pleasure of working as part of a creative team
‘Gaga is like all the fashion designers put together in an ever on-going fashion show . . .she deserves a knighthood or the fashion equivalent for her services to fashion.’ He of course, knows more about the good Lady than others do – having worked with her on numerous shoots and even created her video for Born This Way.
He also worked closely with the late Alexander McQueen; ‘being able to see the world the way he saw the world was vastly inspiring’ as well as all the supermodels, like Naomi Campbell, of whom he once made an enormous sculpture, posed with a machine gun.
