In celebration of the launch of RANKIN SWAG, we've launched a set of six limited run posters.
RANKIN SWAG DISTORTED
Distorited, created for Hunger Magazine Issue 11, comes from the long term collaboration between the photographer and makeup artist Andrew Gallimore.
Andrew Gallimore and Rankin's creative partnership has seen the pair chart British history through makeup; giving their own take on death masks and embrace blood, guts and gore - unafraid to mix beauty and something more macabre.

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.

Andrew chose the face as his specialist subject and on graduation nabbed himself a job as internationally renowned make-up artist, Sharon Dowsett’s No.1 assistant
On going solo, Andrew soon became a regular on shoots for Dazed, Tatler and Elle amongst other publications. His editorial work brought him to the attention of industry legends Patrick Demarchelier, Ellen Von Unwerth and Rankin and soon he was shooting advertising with them. Clients include Jitrois, Bodyshop, Marks and Spencer, Make-up Forever, LK Bennet, Martini and Cartier.
Andrew’s versatility and innate comprehension of a brief have seen him create looks for clients as diverse as Bloomingdales and Beth Ditto.
