Explicit images shot with an artistically compelling and unapologetic flare is what you can expect from Rankin‘s “Contains Nudity” exhibition. Just opened yesterday April 16th, “the showcase displays examples of retrospect on the female form through angles of creativity in both styling and photography. Furthering the allure, the models come from our generation’s icons and role models including the likes of Heidi Klum, Kate Moss, Helena Christensen, Erin O’Connor, Rosie Huntington-Whiteley and Yasmin Le Bon.” Via:Hypebeast

“When I first met my wife Tuuli, she literally took my breath away. But when I look at relationships in this new digital world, everything feels so solitary and at arm’s-length or, even worse, based on algorithms. I wanted to explore the ideas of romance and love in a positive and upbeat way. Where interaction and feelings are as important as swiping right or likes.”
