How Rankin Photographs People
John Rankin Waddell He was born in Scotland in 1966 Rankin is one of the most famous portrait and fashion photographer Rankin has worked with everyone from the Queen to Kate Moss Rankin founded the magazine Dazed & Confused
“Touch Your Toes”
The Portrait of the Queen This is one of Rankin’s more famous photos as it is of the most famous lady in the country, if not the world; the queen. The image is a simple shot of the queen with an unusual smile, instead of the usual plain background, Rankin has placed her in front of the union jack, symbolising her country. I’m not sure as to what the meaning maybe as, it’s a simple portrait possibly used as part of her publicity for the royal family. Most people are used to seeing the image of the queen flanked by various security guards, but this is a more normal portrait showing a more personal side that isn't seen.
