Photographer, Publisher & Film Director
Rankin is a British photographer, publisher and film director. With a portfolio ranging from portraiture to documentary, he has shot The Rolling Stones, David Bowie, Kate Moss, Kendall Jenner and The Queen to name only a few.
Rankin co-founded the seminal magazine Dazed & Confused with Jefferson Hack in 1992, and has since published the likes of AnOther and AnOther Man, alongside over 40 books and the biannual fashion, culture and lifestyle print and digital platform, Hunger.
His photography has been published everywhere from his own publications to Elle, Vogue, Esquire, GQ, Rolling Stone, and Wonderland, and exhibited in galleries around the world, including MoMA, New York, and the Victoria & Albert Museum, London.
As a director, through the eponymous Rankin Film, he has created campaigns for the likes of Nike, L’Oreal, Dove, Pantene, Diageo, Women’s Aid, and Comic Relief alongside music videos for, amongst others, Miley Cyrus, Rita Ora and Kelis. Fearless behind the lens, Rankin’s visuals have become ingrained in contemporary iconography.
Rankin lives in London with his wife Tuuli and their dogs.
