New for Christmas 2023, world-renowned photographer Rankin is bringing some of his most iconic photoshoots to limited run apparel.
Photographed by Rankin in 1995, this image of David Bowie was taken during the early years of Dazed & Confused (founded in 1991). Shot out in California, co-founder of Dazed, Jefferson Hack, interviewed the musical legend alongside Rankin capturing one of his musical heroes with the immediacy, closeness and challenging style for which he was becoming known. Printed in issue 14 of the magazine, these images of Bowie sat alongside profiles of the up-and-comers of the day, including The Chapman Brothers, Tim Burgess, from The Charlatans, and Jas Mann, from Babylon Zoo; exemplifying the wide cultural eye that Rankin brings to documenting and sharing popular culture.

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.
