Nick Knight is a name so frequently seen and heard within our creative world, a man who encompasses so many talents and sharing them through film , art, photography and more.
Brave enough to delve in humanities darkest psyches and patient enough to spend over three and a half years in the herbarium of London’s Natural History Museum mapping the historical movement of flora and fauna, from opium to cotton.
Initiated in 1993 for his installation of ‘Plant Power’ Flora, Knight chose a final 46 specimens (from over 6 million species!!) to photograph. “Some were like feathers of neon, breathtakingly delicate, others were like urban plans, architecturally precise… many were joyful splashes of color like children’s paintings, carefree, happy nonsense.” Almost 15 years later we now get to see this first peek at his limited edition project. The prints will be showcased for the first time in his Bruton Place headquarters in London’s Mayfair for a limited time, so hold off your visit to Kew Gardens and head down to this...
