Sophie Dahl photographed by Nick Knight
“Issues I believed in were not being articulated in my professional work. Issues as simple as that fact that nobody was photographing women who looked like my wife” (whom Knight describes as “curvaceous” and “the most beautiful woman in the world”). “Only people in their teens were being photographed — if you were older than 21 you didn’t have a look in. Lancôme dropped Isabella Rossellini when she turned 40: biggest mistake they ever made. All these examples were around me, and they didn’t sit well with me.”

Wow, really? Lame.
