British born photographer, Rankin, first came to prominence in the early
90s where his intimate approach and playful sense of humour tapped
into the consciousness of the irreverent times. After co-founding the
seminal magazine, Dazed & Confused, he immersed himself with bands,
artists, supermodels and politicians, rising to acclaim with his natural
ability to elicit emotions and create iconic pictures.
Over the years his images have become part of contemporary
iconography. Evidence of his frankness and passion for all aspects of
modern culture are ostensibly represented in his photography. It seeks to
push and provoke, asking questions which others may not ask.
Working with a wide range of artists from all creative mediums, Rankin is
an avid collaborator. Striving for new ways to explore his work, it is his
creative fearlessness that stands out as his enduring impulse.
Rankin continues to publish his bi-annual magazine, Hunger, as well as
direct commercially for some of the biggest global brands. He lives in
London with his wife Tuuli Shipster.
