KNOKKE-HEIST, BELGIUM.- Iconic photographer, publisher and film director Rankin, has been invited to exhibit a major retrospective of his work spanning the last two decades, at the 29th International Photofestival at Knokke-Heist, Belgium. Visually Hungry will document the ubiquitous British creative genius throughout his extraordinary career in which he has shot the many of the worlds leading personalities, models and celebrities. A pioneer and leader in his field, Rankin is famous for his unique style which pushes boundaries with era-defining portraiture, genre-challenging fashion and impossibly erotic nudes.
Featuring over 300 images and 20 years worth of work the exhibition will feature images from Rankins recent series of exhibitions exhibited during his residency at The Gallery in Central London as well as a whole host of archival work from his extensive back catalogue of names spanning the artistic, cultural and political spectrum. This is in addition to fashion images, some instantly recognisable as the most iconic photography from recent times and others as youve never seen them before.
Accompanying the exhibition will be the new Visually Hungry book, beautifully designed by award winning London based company Sea Design, and featuring pieces from the Visually Hungry show as well many more examples of Rankins work.
