    ‘My aim has always been to push at the boundaries of what is and isn't beautiful.’

    Nick Knight

    Nick Knight’s controversial photograph of Kate Moss was taken in 2008 for The Independent's AIDS issue. Knight created a singularly arresting image of one of the most recognisable women in the world by deepening the colour contrast in the print, making her appear to have been painted black.
