We are really looking forward to this one.

Acclaimed celeb snapper Rankin is hosting a new exhibition of his celebrity portaits entitled, not unsuprisingly, “Portraits”. Accompanied by a coffee table book of the same name, the exhbition will showcase the icons of our generation including Madge, Kylie, U2, Blair, Brown, Gorbachov and the Queen.

Rankin’s legacy as co-founder of Dazed and Confused along with his imminent style of intimate photographic portraiture makes him a leading figure in pop culture and fashion photography.

Cherry Sorbet (and MyMetropole!) is looking forward to popping along to Annroy for when this opens.
