Photographer Profile ~ Photographer Nick Knight.

Knight's first book of photographs, 'Skinheads', was published in 1982, when he was a 24-year-old photography student at Bournemouth and Poole College of Art and Design. He was then commissioned by i-D editor Terry Jones to create a series of 100 portraits for the magazine's fifth anniversary issue. As a result of those black-and-white portraits, his work caught the attention of art director Marc Ascoli, who commissioned Knight to shoot the 1986 catalogue of avant-gard Japanese designer Yohji Yamamoto in collaboration with renowned graphic designer Peter Saville. Since this first foray into fashion photography, he has shot both editorial and advertising projects for clients including Alexander McQueenAudiCalvin KleinChristian DiorJil SanderLancômeLevi Strauss, Martine Sitbon, Mercedes-BenzRoyal BalletRoyal Opera HouseSwarovski and Yves Saint Laurent. (*wikipidia)
