Though famed for his celebrity and fashion portraiture, Rankin is never one to stand still, continually instigating and participating in different creative projects. Discussing everything from his recent work on TV's Great British Photography Challenge to his powerful portrait series focusing on the NHS, Rankin will give us insight into what drives him on, as well as the triumphs and inevitable challenges. He'll share his love of filmmaking, examining how his moving image work informs his approach to stills and vice versa. And we delve into the @florabyrankin project - his stunning creative portraits of flowers, with its accompanying book supporting The Care Workers' Charity. Join us as Rankin explores his motivations and approaches, how he weaves everything together, and why he enjoys having so many different elements to his work.
