The second instalment of our Punk: Photography project sees Nick Knight interview photographer Steve Emberton. The conversation concentrates on Emberton's iconic shot of Sid Vicious and Nancy Spungen hand cuffed together at Sid's home in Maida Vale. Emberton gives some candid insights into the pair's behaviour towards him and each other at this pivotal moment not long before their deaths.
You can see Emberton's print at SHOWstudio's Motcomb Street gallery now in an exhibition that showcases the images that were responsible for coining the punk aesthetic. The interview series continues over the coming weeks where each of the photographers in the exhibition reveal intimate details about the shots they took.
