ALIVE: In the face of death

Fashion photographer Rankin departs from his usual subject matter in his new project ‘ALIVE: In the face of death‘.

Highlighting taboos surrounding death and dying, Rankin is photographing people with life limiting illnesses. The portraits make his subjects uniquely visible at a time when many experience profound loss of identity.

An exhibition of the portraits can be viewed at The Walker Gallery, Liverpool.
