During Berlin Fashion Week this year, Nick Knight and Gareth Pugh were both involved in an exhibit at The Galerie Für Moderne Fotografie.
With awkward poses and unique props, these black and white prints gave off an avant-garde and eerie feel. The gowns on the model were brilliantly presented, while Pugh’s self-portraits appeared almost other-worldly. Whether or not fashion is an art form in your eyes, I believe that these prints speak for themselves on the artistic scale.
