In conversation for British Vogue's July digital issue, activist and icon Mulala Yousafzai is joined by Apple CEO Tim Cook. Yousafzai, who is the youngest person to win the Nobel Peace Prize, is a renowned activist for girls' education in Pakistan who famously survived an assasination attempt by the Taliban at the age of 15. Paying tribute to these modern icons, Knight was called upon to capture the pair for the month's exclusive animated digital cover.
In a SHOWstudio film directed by Nick Knight and edited by head of fashion film Raquel Couceiro, Yousafzai and Cook sat down for close to 30 minutes, virtually, to discuss the social change and the empowering force of technology and Apple. They talk about the activist's new deal with AppleTV+, her new production company, Extracurricular, and learning to code in the context of the future of girls' education.
Knight also photographed Yousafzai for the newstands cover of the British style bible, wearing Stella McCartney. Styled by Kate Phelan, with hair by Sam McKnight, nails by Adam Slee and make-up matriarch Val Garland also on hand, Knight continues his long-working relationship with the title and editor-in-chief Edward Enninful with a moving tribute to the power young women hold within them.
