If you are familiar with SHOWstudio.com, you’re familiar with Nick Knight – or the other way around. As a fashion photographer he started SHOWstudio.com in 2000 as a fashion portal, taking fashion fascination just a bit further.
Knights visual aesthetics and productions whether photos or videos are fascinating, experimental and so beautiful.
As SHOWstudio celebrates its 30th anniversary Knight has photographed 200 portraits of “the most important people in fashion, music and culture today“. SHOWstudio will show video portraits every week, “documenting not only this shoot but a slice of twenty-first century culture“. These videos are really fascinating, sort of documenting modern life in a very personal, individual way, keeping it simple.
To see the videos that are out so far, go to: 200 portraits.
My favourites at the moment are Florence Welsh, Behati Prinsloo, S.C.U.M and Alana Zimmer. Hell, I dig all of them!
