From British photographer rankin, Swag is a new concept in photography collecting.
Celebrating the visual through print and limited edition, swag is here to bring a love for contemporary photography into every home.
Founded in 2021, SWAG showcases both archival and new works from the prolific photographer, alongside highlighting projects with collaborators and creatives who make up the wider Rankin studio family.
A space for fashion, art, beauty, nude, floral, and portrait photography, the ethos behind SWAG is that everyone can and should be able to access photography. Breaking down the boundaries of the traditional art world, this isn't a stuffy white cube, we're all part of the wider photographic family.

Rankin is a British photographer, publisher, and film director.
As a photographer Rankin's portfolio ranges from portraiture to documentary. He has shot The Rolling Stones, David Bowie, Kate Moss, Kendall Jenner and The Queen to name only a few.
He is best known for work that is on the cultural cusp and leading future trends: producing rule-breaking campaigns for brands such as Rolls Royce, Unilever, L’Oreal and Samsonite; creating wide reaching projects for charities including Women’s Aid and Macmillan; and shooting music videos for the likes of Miley Cyrus, Rita Ora and Kelis.
As a publisher, Rankin co-founded the seminal magazine Dazed & Confused with Jefferson Hack in 1991, and has since published the likes of AnOther and AnOther Man, alongside over 40 books and the biannual fashion and culture print and digital platform, Hunger.
His photography has been published everywhere from his own publications to Elle, Vogue, Esquire, GQ, Rolling Stone, and Wonderland, and exhibited in galleries globally, including MoMA, New York, and the Victoria & Albert Museum, London.
Rankin lives in London with his wife Tuuli and their dogs.
