To mark its 30th anniversary in 2010, style title i-D has collaborated with Nick Knight and SHOWstudio on an exclusive photographic project.
The two media platforms are creating a portfolio of 100 portraits of a host of stylists, editors, models, actors, photographers and musicians, which mirrors the 100 portraits created by Nick Knight for the fifth anniversary of i-D in 1985; the models include Kate Moss, Naomi Campbell, Alexander McQueen, Christopher Kane, Gareth Pugh, Florence And The Machine and Leona Lewis. The shoot takes place at Somerset House from December 1 until December 20, as part of the exhibition SHOWstudio: Fashion Revolution. Nick Knight will also be working in the Live Studio at Somerset House in front of a two-way mirror, allowing exhibition-goers to watch throughout. The feature will run in i-D in 2010, and the progress of the shoot will be documented live on showstudio.com, with photographs from each day showcased in a gallery adjacent to the Live Studio.
