In celebration of the launch of RANKIN SWAG, we've launched a set of six limited run posters.


Always interested in the more conceptual side of beauty imagery, Light Up, shot in 2018, is an example of the creative rulebreaking between Rankin and his close collaborator, Hairstylist Nick Irwin. Collaborators for over 20 years, Nick and Rankin are always pushing the boundaries of what glamour looks like.

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.
Irwin began his hairdressing career in the north of England, eventually moving to London to work with the TONI & GUY Artistic Team in the 90s. He went on to travel the globe with the international super group. Irwin’s ability to understand the aesthetic of editorial and high fashion hair has made him one of the most sought after hairstylists in the industry.

His work has seen him go from Global Creative Director of Tigi International to sitting on the board of directors at Unilever where he truly honed his knowledge and expertise of Art & Commerce.

2014 Nick decided to fully immerse himself back in the session world. His work can be seen in Global Fashion magazines to International advertising campaigns. Nick has a star-studded clientele and works with some of the biggest photographers in the industry. His relationship with the Iconic Photographer Rankin and the team at Hunger Magazine is imperative in his creative thought process and this has led him to undertake the title of Hunger Magazine’s hair editor.
