From: Andrew Gallimore by Rankin

Gift: Andrew Gallimore by Rankin

Isn’t this a fabulous image from the book: Andrew Gallimore by Rankin.  Sounds like another great Christmas gift idea for lovers of photography, fashion, beauty and art:

For the fourth installment in Rankin’s beauty book series, the prolific photographer teams up with Hunger Magazine’s very own Beauty-Editor-At-Large, Andrew Gallimore.  His previous high-profile collaborations for the series have included Alex Box, Ayami Nishimura and Caroline Saulnier.

Having first worked together on Jitrois’s AW08 campaign, Rankin and Andrew have been friends for six years, joining forces on a number of landmark editorial projects and commercial shoots. The pair’s most recent project, Andrew Gallimore by Rankin, not only documents their creative partnership thus far but features new, never-before-seen material shot exclusively for the stunning art book.

Featuring a range of compelling portraiture, Andrew Gallimore by Rankin sees the pair chart British history through make-up, give their own vibrant take on death masks and embrace blood, guts and gore. As the UK’s first ambassador for Dior, Andrew has never been one to shy away from experimentation while, since founding Dazed & Confused in 1992, Rankin has captured almost every walk of life with his lens.

This unique set of images illustrates that, both individually and as a pair, Rankin and Andrew are game changers at the top of their fields who never cease to impress and amaze.

My burgeoning book wish-list is spiralling out of control … what’s a girl  to do?!  Make a case for guilty self-gifts, maybe?
