Billed as Rankin's 'most ambitious exhibition to date', the Rankin Live project saw the world famous photographer and Dazed & Confused co-founder shoot 1,000 members of the British public, then print and hang the pictures live at the show. All proceeds from the prints went to Oxfam, a charity that Rankin has created stunningly evocative imagery for in the past.
Rankin led the search for 'eccentric and enthusiastic Londoners' in an attempt to capture the style and expression of the times. I'm not sure what that says about the members of our Marketing team who were photographed, but we were over the moon with the images!
Lisa Henderson, our Marketing and PR Executive is normally camera shy, but found Rankin so easy to work with that her confidence really shines through: "I am in awe of Rankin’s work. I don’t know how he does it but he just knows exactly what to do in order to get the best of each person when he photographs them – a snapshot of their character captured forever in that small moment in time." Couldn't agree more Lisa.
Jess summed it up for us nicely: "was great doing something out of the ordinary – sitting still and not getting the giggles was a challenge. The end result looks nothing like the real me, but is something I will show my grandchildren when I’m old and grey. Rankin is a legend!"
From the sublime to the rebellious, we're beaming with pride over these pics. Hope you like them too.
