R A N K I N

{photo via RANKIN}

John Rankin Waddell, aka R A N K I N, was born in 1966. He is a British portrait and fashion photographer.
In 1999, Rankin and Jefferson Hack {journalist and magazine editor} founded Dazed Film & TV, and in 2000, Rankin launched his own fashion magazine RANK.
But, the most incredible thing that he did {in my opinion, cuz this is my blog and I think you all want to know my opinion} is a documentary made in January 2009 for BB4 Seven Photographer that Changed Fashion; he dedicates his own tributes to the iconic images by Richard Avedon, Helmut Newton, Cecil Beaton, Erwin Blumenfeld, Herb Ritts, Guy Bourdin and David Bailey {I recommend this documentary}.
I really hope you will like this post, because I love him.
