Saatchi Art’s The Other Art Fair returns to The Truman Brewery this March, with yet another dynamic, art filled line-up. This year the Fair welcomes exclusive guest artist Rankin, bringing RankinLIVE to the London edition of the artist-led Fair for the first time.
This event is a unique opportunity for members of the public to be directed and photographed by one of Britain’s most successful and talented photographers.
Tickets for the experience include time in front of the lens, either solo or with a loved one, as well as a digital version of the final portrait and your very own A4 authenticated Rankin print.It is priced at £420.
Rankin’s portfolio spans photography for print, advertising and exhibitions, shooting portraits of well known and loved cultural icons from Queen Elizabeth II to David Bowie, Kate Moss to The Rolling Stones, as well as producing rule-breaking campaigns for brands such as Rolls Royce and L’Oréal.
His career includes publishing, beginning with the co-founding of seminal magazine Dazed & Confused in 1992 alongside Jefferson Hack, leading the way for accessible counterculture. Rankin has published numerous projects since, including AnOther and AnOther Man, over 40 books as well as biannual fashion and culture platform Hunger.
The first RankinLIVE event back in 2009 saw Rankin take to The Old Truman Brewery with the intention of glamorising public figures in an age of celebrity obsession. During the live exhibition, Rankin shot 1,800 people across the world, attracting a wide variety of individuals.
