Subjective continues! This week, in our model interview series, Karen Elson reminisces with Nick Knight about working with Craig McDean. Talking specifically on the intimate 2002 film Devil’s Plaything, working alongside former Smashing Pumpkins and Hole bassist, Melissa Auf der Maur, and performing SHOWstudio's 'singing cover’.
Elson and Knight candidly discuss the film shot in Auf der Maur’s apartment in the Chelsea Hotel, New York, in which Elson later lived for a short period of time, and its role in beginning the model's music career. The interview convenes on the importance of music, ‘I feel that music just has that power where you could create your own meaning towards that song and its so individual what a persons perception is to music, the way it is of any art form… it's very mysterious, it just has that power to take you away’, Elson laments.
