The MUST-SEE Exhibition - Nick Knight in Zürich


Christophe Guye Galerie in Zürich proudly announces
 a solo exhibition of one of the world’s most influential
and visionary photographers: Nick Knight.


The Swiss premiere showcases a cross section of Nick Knight’s creative work from the last two decades. Beside a selection of his most iconic photographs, an assemblage of his award-winning fashion films will be on view, as well as one of his „photographic sculptures“; a porcelain sculpture of Kate Moss with its delicate and refined features employs the very same approach and the same techniques that he uses in photography.


Born in London in 1958, Knight studied photography at Bournemouth & Poole College of Art and Design. He graduated with a distinction in 1982. In 1985 his first book, Skinheads, won him the Designers and Art Directors Award for Best Book Cover. Yohji Yamamoto’s art director Marc Ascoli commissioned Knight for 12 successive catalogues in the late Eighties - at a time when Yamamoto campaigns were breaking new ground. Knight made fashion history in November 1993 by adapting ring-flash photography to capture Linda Evangelista for a landmark, post-grunge cover of British Vogue. Since then, his work has graced no fewer than 36 covers. He has shot advertising campaigns for Jil Sander, Louis Vuitton, Calvin Klein, Yves Saint Laurent, Vivienne Westwood, Alexander McQueen and Christian Dior to name a few. He has also shot record covers for David Bowie, Paul Weller, George Michael and Massive Attack.
