CWC Gallery presents an exhibition by Rankin
Touch Your Toes, 1996.
BERLIN.- Spring 2017 sees CWC GALLERY become the stage for the incredible creativity, exceptional inventiveness and artistic expression of one of the world's most exciting and highly respected living photographers: Rankin. The exhibition includes more than 50 works created by Rankin from 1995 until today, giving a comprehensive insight into Rankin's extraordinary oeuvre.

The exhibition invites the viewer to enter the fascinating world of Rankin. It presents works from different series – including iconic nudes of supermodels such as Heidi Klum, Kate Moss and Gisele Bündchen, portraits of personalities like David Bowie, and several innovative personal series that break from artistic conventions. Uniting the works is Rankin’s unique ability to question social norms and ideas of beauty, crossing artistic frontiers.

Works by Rankin are part of major international public and private collections and have been exhibited in museums worldwide. A major retrospective was shown at NRW Forum in Dusseldorf in 2012 followed by exhibitions at Kunsthalle Rostock and National Portrait Gallery in London. After publishing more than 30 books in his career, his latest books entitled »#NSFW« and »Hunger: The Book« were recently published by teNeues (2016).

Rankin was born in 1966 in Paisley (Scotland). After attending the London College of Communication, Rankin made his name in publishing by founding the seminal monthly magazine »Dazed & Confused« with Jefferson Hack in 1992. It provided a platform for innovation for emerging stylists, designers, photographers and writers. The magazine went on to forge a distinctive mark in the arts and publishing spheres, and developed a cult status forming and moulding trends, bringing some of the brightest lights in fashion to the foreground. Today, Dazed Media is a leading online fashion and cultural brand.

Rankin has created landmark editorial and advertising campaigns. His body of work features some of the most celebrated publications, biggest brands and pioneering charities, including Nike, Swatch, Dove, Pantene, Diageo, and Oxfam. He has shot covers for, amongst others, »Elle«, »Vogue«, »Esquire«, »GQ«, »Rolling Stone« and »Wonderland«. In 2001, Jefferson Hack and Rankin launched »AnOther Magazine«, with a focus on fashion, originality, and distinction.

Since the early 1990s, Rankin has been known for his portraiture of bands, artists, supermodels and politicians. Personal or commercial, his images have become part of contemporary iconography, evidence of his frankness and passion for all aspects of modern culture. In November 2011 Rankin returned to magazine publishing with »Hunger«. A biannual fashion, culture and lifestyle magazine, »Hunger« and its associated Hunger TV website – a video based digital platform featuring in depth interviews, fashion films, blogs, and previews – marked Rankin's return to the fashion world with an understanding that the future is not only printed but digital too.

Rankin lives in London with his wife, Tuuli, and son, Lyle.
