Nick Knight and Gareth Pugh in Berlin

During Berlin Fashion Week Nick Knight and Gareth Pugh were involved in an exhibit at The Galerie Für Moderne Fotografie.

Nick Knight took photos of a model in a beautiful handmade gown by Gareth Pugh. The model does a great job of showing off the gowns best assets with movement. God, I love Nick Knight’s photography.

Pugh then had the lens turned on himself for a series of portaits with Sølve Sundsbø.

Pugh’s portraits are so weird and so appealing.  I love the shot with the Roman like helmet on.  I’m attracted to anything military regardless of era.   He really does look like an alien in that last image.
