Knock on Knoke
Robert Knoke. Remember the name or more importantly remember the work, not that you'll ever forget it. Bringing new meaning to portriature as it captures you with sidelong glances. Multi stroked layers of darkness albeit without lack of light. Today I sat in good company for my portrait, from Peaches, Terence Koh, Gareth Pugh, Rick Owens, The Kills, AA Bronson, and my hometown friend Bruce La Bruce. As he took my photos he said I reminded him so much of when he took photos for another of his portraits....Diamanda Galas. He touched me at the core of where darkness lies in my heart...I bore into his lens and pleased he called it a wrap!
