Hunger: The Book is a look back over the first ten issues of Hunger Magazine, launched by photographer Rankin in 2011.
The biannual magazine was born from Rankin's desire to celebrate the most creative and provocative voices in culture and fashion. The book highlights the magazine's finest moments, editorials, and celebrity portraits, as well as taking a behind-the-scenes look that includes never-before-published images, film stills, original sketches and tell-all anecdotes.

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.
At its core, Hunger is fascinated by people, fashion, music and art. It is excited by the new, and mindful of the established.
Hunger readers are cultivated, brand savvy and love luxury. They dare to break the confines of popular culture to satisfy their appetite for individuality and cultural progression.
