Fashion in Film Festival: Nick Knight in Conversation
Hackney Picturehouse, 270 Mare Street, London
This event is part of the Fifth Fashion in Film Festival, Frame by Frame: Dissecting the Fashion Moving Image Now, curated by Hywel Davies and Marketa Uhlirova and organised in association with StrangeLove London at Central Saint Martins.
As well as being one of the most in-demand fashion photographers working today, Nick Knight has over the last 15 years also produced a significant body of work in moving images. In the late 1980s he began the unusual practice of documenting his photographic shoots on video, and since co-founding the website SHOWstudio in 2000, he has championed different forms of the moving image as compelling – and viable – ways of presenting contemporary fashion. SHOWstudio is now a leading international platform for displaying the fashion film.
Knight will be joined by film scholar Nick Rees-Roberts to discuss his advocacy of novel and dynamic modes of fashion communication, with an emphasis on the moving image.
