Fancy a Rank?…at the Old Truman Brewery

RANKIN01

Last Thursday saw the opening night of celebrity photographer John Rankin’s epic retrospective exhibition at the Old Truman Brewery. Epic is no over statement; described as ‘museum scale’, the exhibition covers 22,000 square foot and includes over 600 of Rankin’s distinctive images from is archive. Rankin showcases a vast array of his work spanning  across his 22 year career. His subjects range from Kate Moss to the Queen with themes ranging from the bizarre to the erotic, cleverly curated within separated sectioned off areas. The exhibition goes by the title ‘Fancy a Rank’ and whoever came up with that cheeky line had a few more where that came from, ‘He came, he saw, he ranked’, ‘Rank OFF!’ and ‘I’ve been Ranking’ were all displayed on button badges handed out at the entrance on the night of the private view.

This is an ambitious and entertianing show from one of the world’s most talented celebrity photographers and is well worth a visit. The show is on at The Old Truman Brewery, 85 Brick Lane and runs for 7 weeks until 18th September.
