Iconic British Photographer Rankin is in Stockholm!
Yesterday I went to see a preview of his first solo exhibition in Sweden, showing his most famous work from three decades as a leading force in portrait, beauty- and pop-culture photography.
Rankin revolutionized Beauty Photography in the 90s with his bold and colourful expression.
Rankin has also created over 40 books and the biannual fashion & lifestyle print and digital platform HUNGER.
For me personally, living in London during the 90s, those publications and it´s aesthetic dictated the style of the decade, and was a huge inspiration.
“This show – ‘Rankin: The…’ take some of my favourite images of all the genre’s I love most.
A kind of a “best of”, but with a more personal twist.”
“Although best known for my portraits, I am always miscast as a fashion or celebrity photographer. I’m really just excitable and love all photography”
