About the artist

Nick Knight

Nick Knight is among the world’s most influential and visionary photographers. As a fashion photographer, he has consistently challenged conventional notions of beauty and is fêted for his ground-breaking creative collaborations with leading designers including Yohji Yamamoto, John Galliano and Alexander McQueen. Nick has produced advertising campaigns for the most prestigious clients such as Burberry, Chanel, Fendi, Christian Dior, Lancôme, Swarovski, Tom Ford, Calvin Klein and Yves Saint Laurent as well as award-winning editorials for W, British Vogue, Paris Vogue, Dazed & Confused, Another, Another Man and i-D magazine, all of which have consistently kept Knight at the vanguard of progressive image-making for the past four decades. He has directed award winning music videos for Bjork, Lady Gaga and Kanye West. His first book of photographs, Skinheads, was published in 1982, winning a DandAD award in 1996. He has since produced Nicknight, a twelve year retrospective, Flora, a series of pressed flowers and plants from the Natural History Museum, both published by Schirmer Mosel and Nick Knight a retrospective monograph published by Harper Collins. His work has been exhibited at such international art institutions as the Tate Modern, Victoria & Albert Museum, Saatchi Gallery, National Portrait Gallery, the Photographers' Gallery, Hayward Gallery and the Gagosian Gallery. In 1993, Knight produced a permanent installation, Plant Power, for the Natural History Museum in London which was on display for 15 years. 

A long-standing commitment to experimenting with the latest technologies led to Knight launching his fashion website SHOWstudio in 2000, with an aim, in Knight's own words, of 'showing the entire creative process from conception to completion.' SHOWstudio has pioneered fashion film and is now recognised as the leading force behind this medium, offering a unique platform to nurture and encourage fashion to engage with moving image in the digital age. Since its inception, SHOWstudio has worked with the world’s most sought-after filmmakers, writers and influential cultural figures to create visionary online content, exploring every facet of fashion through moving image, illustration, photography and the written word. 

Knight lives with his wife in London. He was awarded the OBE in 2010 for his services to the arts. He is an honorary professor of the University of the Arts London and was awarded an honorary PHD by the same university.
