"For some reason people always think there's a lot of post-production in my work but there isn't always. This image for Yohji Yamamoto is basically as it was on the transparency. There's no cutting out, no adding bits to it, no bringing one part of one image to another. Sarah Wingate walked out of the changing room looking like that. We put one light on the bustle, so the bustle's lit, and the rest is in shadow. That's it."
Recently, when Lady Gaga approached Nick Knight to work on her tour films, she recounts their first ever conversation with him: "I just called Nick. We were struggling to put the tour together so quickly and we wanted to do something very video driven and very interactive and I thought if I am going to do a video based show I need someone who can create videos and visuals who is really a genius. So I just called Nick and said “I’m in trouble. I need to phone God to help me get all this done in time. So naturally I called God, I called Nick Knight.” He started laughing. He just said, “oh thank you very much that’s very nice of you.” In that incredibly polite way he has. I said I wanted him to really push me, to go beyond my limits in terms of what I had done so far. In terms of marrying performance art, music and fashion and visuals. So naturally he wanted me to puke on myself and eat a bovine heart and do all sorts of other things," she mockingly states.
