Sponsored by fashion and lifestyle retailer Breuninger, on September 15 the Düsseldorf NRW-Forum will open the first comprehensive exhibition on Rankin, one of the world’s most influential beauty and celebrity photographers. Rankin (born John Rankin Waddell) is a British portrait and fashion photographer who has shot the likes of Kate Moss, Heidi Klum, Gisele Bündchen, Claudia Schiffer, Keira Knightley, Vivienne Westwood, Katy Perry, Madonna, Cate Blanchett, Nelly Furtado, David Bowie, and a host of other stars. Synonymous with dynamic and intimate portraiture, Rankin has worked with everyone from royalty to refugees. His powerful images are part of contemporary iconography and present a cross section of his own personal interests and commercial campaigns, from Nike to Women’s Aid. His work is regularly exhibited in galleries around the world, from São Paolo to Moscow, London to LA. The exhibition at the NRW-Forum is sponsored by Breuninger and runs until January 13, 2013.
