Where To Get Rankin’ed This June-------
Rankin has shot some of the most famous people in the world, both as co-founder of Dazed & Confused and as an independent lensman for publications like Harper’s Bazaar, Arena, GQ, and German Vogue. The list is nearly limitless: Everyone from Heidi Klum (dripping in chocolate, above) to the Queen of England to Pulp to Kate Moss to…you. For five days at the beginning of June, the photographer brings his studio to Milk Gallery, where as the latest installment of his Rankin Live! Project, he’ll shoot a selection of self-nominated subjects. Anyone 16 and over can submit a photo of themselves and a brief explanation to firstname.lastname@example.org; the “most original” (interpret as you will) will be invited to be shot and have their picture displayed alongside Kate’s and the Queen’s in a rotating exhibition, which opens tonight and runs through June 10. The cost for your own personal Rankin? $100, which goes to Oxfam, the global anti-poverty charity. Chocolate not included.
