Still from The Right Hand by Nick Knight, part of The Fashion Body,
Known as much for his angular gait and the fact that he always wears the same outfit when he works as he is for his iconoclastic photography, Nick Knight has been pushing creative boundaries for as long as anyone can remember.
It comes as little surprise then that a veritable army of models, singers, actors and superstars have been clamouring to work with the photographic deity for his latest - predictably groundbreaking - project, "The Fashion Body".
Over the course of the coming months - every Monday, Wednesday and Friday to be precise - a series of 30 short films made by the likes of Lady Gaga, Lily Cole, Rick Owens and Gareth Pugh will be posted up on Knight's online fashion portal SHOWstudio.com.
Each star was tasked with producing a short film based around a specific part of the human body in interaction with garments from recent collections, as part of Knight's ambitious plan to produce a living, breathing fashion body.
The first film in the series comes care of the man himself, Nick Knight. Entitled "Right Hand" it sets a sinister tone for things to come. So, if you fancy getting up close and personal with Liberty Ross' ribs or Ruth Hogben's buttocks be sure to visit www.SHOWstudio.com over the coming months.
