The latest instalment of Subjective is here! Nick Knight continues to re-evaluate contemporary fashion imagery from the perspective of the model. This week he interviews Alek Wek about her involvement in a portrait Knight took of John Galliano.
Knight explains that Galliano specifically requested Wek to appear in the image alongside him. 'He could've asked so many beautiful women that he's worked with... It was very humbling that he asked me,' says Wek of the former Dior creative director. 'He's not just a designer, he's quite an artist I feel.' The two also discuss the issues of racism in the fashion industry, posing nude and Knight's relationship with Wek, with Knight praising her presence in front of the camera; 'The poetry that you give off is incredible,' he says.
