Event description

Description

At a time when everyone carries a smartphone camera in their pocket and consumers are bombarded with more imagery than ever before, what makes a truly arresting visual? How is technology changing the role of photographers and videographers? And with the print industry in crisis, what are the repercussions for boundary-pushing imagery?

For the last 40 years, renowned British image maker Nick Knight OBE has shot award-winning images for commercial and editorial purposes. From creative collaborations with Yohji Yamamoto and Alexander McQueen, to advertising campaigns for clients such as Dior and Yves Saint Laurent, he is a household name in both fine art and fashion, while his passion and endorsement of fashion film has spearheaded change in the industry.

Join us to hear Nick dissect where he and the industry are moving next. The founder and director of SHOWstudio.com will also talk about his forthcoming project using artificial intelligence and the upcoming SHOWstudio exhibition with artist Stephen Doherty.


Please note: the talk will begin promptly at 6.30pm.
