Phil Knott on photographing Michael K Williams:  "This was actually shot at the Trump Tower Hotel.  The funny thing about that hotel was when you looked behind the furniture it was all like chipboard and that, very ‘fur coat, no knickers’ sort of thing, made to look nice but really cheap.  This was one of the subjects I really enjoyed, just the intensity, maybe reflects some of the characters he played.  That beautiful scar across his face, doesn’t come across as a disfiguration, it was like a pirate’s scar, it worked.  He looks slick, with a calmness and self-assurance of an old-style gangster.
