300 color and duotone photographs. The British photographer Rankin and co-founder of Dazed & Confused magazine and founder of Hunger magazine, released a major retrospective of his photographs titled More. The book includes photos taken over the 20 years of work, and for convenience, it was decided to sort them by chapters ("Fashion ", " Myths ", "Beauty", " Portraits ", " Nude"). About More, Rankin says, If you look at my work and compare it to others, it's a little uncomfortable, a bit strange, and a bit challenging. I think my pictures are anti-celebrity-get them off the pedestal, get them face-to-face.
If you look at the work, it's leveling. So the "Portraits " chapter includes shootings of Scarlett Johansson, Jay-Z, Heidi Klum, the Rolling Stones and other celebrities.In addition, it presents photos taken by Rankin for his joint book with artist Damien Hirst, Myths, Monsters and Legends. British novelist and author of MORE's foreword, William Boyd, reveals: There are wonderful portraits in this book, world-class, in my opinion, where we see that Rankin has managed to garner something new about even the most familiar faces.
