Rankin: PLAY

Rankin, David Bowie, Dazed & Confused, 1995.

In celebration of his latest Rizzoli monograph, PLAY, join portrait photographer Rankin as he discusses over 30 years of photographing musicians.

PLAY draws exclusively on Rankin’s archive of photographs of the biggest names in contemporary music from the rock gods who shaped our musical landscape to the British Invasion of the 1990s and the American superstars who mix music and production to define what the record industry is today.

In conversation with curator Mimi Gray, Rankin discusses his favourite images of the most influential artists of the last three decades, from David Bowie and Elton John to Pharrell, the Spice Girls, Grimes, and Bjork.
