It’s retro, it’s spective, hold on one cotton-picking moment, it’s a retrospective. By Rankin. But don’t let that put you off.

All hail

Aw, look at Her Gracious and Imperial – and other great stuff – Majesty looking all perky and smiley in a photograph by Rankin. No first name or no surname, just Rankin. Like Twiggy or Lulu or Bagpuss.

The reason we run this picture, apart from pure feelings of respect, devotion, obsession even with Her G&I, is that Rankin – remember him from the last sentence? – is having a restrospective of his greatest hits at the East End’s glittering Truman Brewery. No longer a brewery but still a whole load of fun.

The exhibition runs from 31st July, which is Friday, until September sometime and will feature new works of regular people off the streets (not street people, exactly, just regular people) shot by Rankin on the day and hung immediately. ‘Hung’ *giggles*

For more of the man’s fine fine work – including Kate Moss, Auntie Viv Westy andcetera – jump the jump…

 
The most beautiful woman he's ever shot, apparently. Off with his head! Ms. Harry Her Dameness Auntie Viv

  1. That Union Jack behind the Queen’s head is like ‘My First Photoshop’. Shocking rubbish.

  2. His portrait of Autnie Viv — as above & widely used everywhere — is one of my favourite portraits ever! :-)
