This fall the British photographer Rankin and co-founder of Dazed & Confused magazine and founder of Hunger magazine, released a major retrospective of his photographs titled More. The book includes photos taken over the 20 years of work , and for convenience , it was decided to sort them by chapters ( “Fashion “, ” Myths “,”Beauty”, ” Portraits “, ” Nude” ) .

About More, Rankin says, “If you look at my work and compare it to others, it’s a little uncomfortable, a bit strange, and a bit challenging.…I think my pictures are anti-celebrity—get them off the pedestal, get them face-to-face.…If you look at the work, it’s leveling.”

So the “Portraits ” chapter includes shootings of Scarlett Johansson , Jay-Z, Heidi Klum , the Rolling Stones and other celebrities. In addition, it presents photos taken by Rankin for his joint book with artist Damien Hirst ,Myths, Monsters and Legends.

British novelist and author of MORE’s foreword, William Boyd, reveals: “There are wonderful portraits in this book, world-class, in my opinion, where we see that Rankin has managed to garner something new about even the most familiar faces.”

In 2014, the album More will be released in the format Collector’s Edition: 368 pp., hardcover with jacket and hand-painted title, a presentation box and portfolio with one signed and numbered photoprint and 300 color and duotone photographs. Its cost is (yes ) $ 2,500 . if you preorder it until December 31st, 2013 afterwards: USD 2.800

The photo-album is published in three languages ​​: English, German and French.
