I can't get enough of the works of photographer, publisher and film director, Rankin. He established his reputation when he launched Dazed & Confused with his business partner Jefferson Hack in 1991. Rankin’s stunning style and his incredible eye for beauty have gained him a reputation as one of the world’s leading photographers. Rankin is addressing issues from domestic violence to body image in both his personal work as well as charity and commercial projects. He made headlines again with his campaign for Dove showing women who differed from the usual stick-thin advertising stereotype. He has also shot prominent charity campaigns for Amnesty International, Everyman, Special Olympics, Oxfam, Teenage Cancer Trust, Refuge, The Teaching Awards, Women’s Aid, Women’s Vote, Breast Cancer Awareness and Youth Music.
Rankin kicked off 2009 by inviting people across the UK to participate in his most ambitious project to date - Rankin Live! A show of two halves, Rankin Live brought the museum-scale retrospective of the last 22 years in Rankin’s photographic life together with the portraits of 1,500 of today’s British public.
