London-based photographer and director Rankin’s images continue to create the hallmarks of contemporary iconography. Co-founder of a trendsetting magazine, his work ranges from portraits of celebrities to those of displaced persons in the Congo. He has earned a reputation for creative portraiture, and his work, which often questions established notions of beauty, appears regularly in galleries around the world, as well as on billboards and magazine covers. As a director, he has shot music videos for topselling artists, commercials for global brands and the award-winning feature film, “The Lives of the Saints”. He is also known as a documentary filmmaker for “The Seven Photos that Changed Fashion”, “South Africa in Pictures” and “Shooting the Stars”, which traces the history of photography in Hollywood. Rankin also supports a number of charities.
