Watch the latest instalment in our Subjective model interview series!
This week, Nick Knight discusses his Christian Dior A/W 01 campaign with model Karen Elson. Analysing the shoot from Elson's perspective, they talk about the level of physicality required for each dynamic shot. In order to make the image look authentic, Elson was harnessed and hoisted throughout the process. It was this energetic and effective use of motion that created a ground-breaking campaign. ‘Going where we are right now, we think of Cara. We think of how fashion has transcended and changed into being a lot younger and more urban- from being haute couture to relating to a different generation and I think that this was the beginning of all that,’ Elson explains.
