Since then he has gone on to shoot the biggest names in fashion, celebrity and music from Kate Moss to the Queen, Brad Pitt to Tony Blair. This summer he’s undertaken his most ambitious exhibition yet, shooting people selected from thousands of applicants as the live part of the exhibition, with portraits being displayed on huge screens which form part of the his ever growing collection.
We just couldn’t resist the chance to get in on the action so hot footed it down to the Truman Brewery where we went through a whirlwind of hair and make up (where the lovely Lynda worked her magic) and before we knew it we were in front of the camera giving Rankin our best pouts. Chin down, wind machine on and eyes through the camera. Wow!
Rankin himself was amazing and soon had us pouting away, striking some serious poses and really getting into it. Such a cool vibe and exciting buzz, we didn’t want to leave – but left on a high, armed with our fab photos and dreaming of cover shoots.
Applications are still open so get in quick or just make sure you go down & check out the exhibition showcasing a massive retrospective of 22 years of the hottest photographer on the block at the Truman Brewery, Brick Lane until 18th September.
