Get Your Picture Taken by Famed Photographer, Rankin, in NYC
Famed Fashion photographer and co-founder of popular British Style Magazine, Dazed & Confused, John Rankin Waddell, better known as just “Rankin”, is having an exhibition titled “Open” at the Milk Gallery to showcase 20 years of his work.
“I named the show ‘Open’ because its the state of mind I think I need as a photographer. I have to be open to new people, experiences, challenges. I hope my work reflects this.” Says Rankin
Rankin’s impressive list of clients includes major stars such as Britney Spears, Kate Moss, Spice Girls, Madonna, Vivienne Westwood, Queen Elizabeth II, and MIA. While he is in town, he will also get a bit experimental. He’s calling out to stylish New Yorkers who want to be part of a live photographic performance. For five days, he will take up residence at Milk and shoot, retouch and exhibit his high volume of new work on each day. The shoot will take place June 1-June 5.
The official call out is – Rankin is inviting New York’s exceptional and stylish personalities to his set. Do you fit the bill? If you’re over 16, submit a photo of yourself and explain (briefly) “why” to firstname.lastname@example.org. The most original applicants will be selected and invited to Milk Gallery for their personal shoot.
Each portrait will cost $100. All proceeds will go to Oxfam.
Hmmm… sounds like fun!
