Nick Knight's 100 Portraits LIVE at Somerset House

Join us from 1-20 December and witness a unique moment in twenty-first century culture as Nick Knight shoots 100 Portraits in the SHOWstudio: Fashion Revolution Live Studio at Somerset House. Marking the 30th anniversary of i-D magazine next year - and mirroring the 1985 portrait series he shot for the magazine's 5th birthday - this mammoth shoot's subjects are an eclectic mix of actors, models, artists, writers, musicians and designers, featuring some of the most adored and celebrated names in each industry. Among those confirmed so far include Kate Moss, Naomi Campbell, Alexander McQueen, Christopher Kane, Gareth Pugh, Florence & The Machine and Leona Lewis - whilst a selection of Knight's original 100, including Simon Foxton, Michael Clark and Stephen Jones (above), will pose once again. Shooting his subjects in back-to-back sessions throughout the day, Nick Knight invites you to experience each iconic shot as it happens. The photographs from each day will be showcased in a public gallery next to the Live Studio, while the final results will feature in i-D's anniversary issue next year.

Our firsts photographic session kicks off at 11am tomorrow, so join us online or in person at Somerset House and be part of this once-in-a-lifetime experience.
