myths monsters & legends

Famed fashion photographer Rankin has collaborated with longtime friend and Bristol-born YBA/controversialist Damien Hirst for an exhibition at the Annroy Gallery in London named Myths, Monsters and Legends. Rankin's website describes the project as "an exploration of imagined narratives and monsters of past civilizations, viewed through a modern lens." Clearly visible are the unique styles of each: Rankin's clinical aesthetic and Hirst's penchant for the macabre.

catch the exhibition until November 6th.
and catch the book online if you can't make it to London in time.

Also new in the Rankin-related sphere of photography literature is the visual history of boundary-breaking magazine Dazed and Confused, founded by the man himself and journalist Jefferson Hack.
Both are on amazon for £34 and £22.60 respectively.

elsewhere.. happy halloweekend!
