Rankin has photographed pretty much everyone. From The Queen to Cindy Crawford and Robert Downey Jr to Gordon Brown. Oh, and he also started Dazed & Confused. He has cemented his position as one of the most acclaimed British photographers of our generation. Most recently he has curated The Peroni Collection – Italian Style on the Silver Screen alongside film expert and cultural commentator Anna Battista. The exhibition features seven never before seen images, shot by Rankin exclusively for this exhibition and inspired by his love of Cinema Paradiso and Italian style and is online at http://www.peroniitaly.com. We spoke to him about running Dazed, teaching photography on Jamie’s Dream School and how to get a great photograph.
