Rankin

So, after introduction make up artist Alex box, I wanna give some information about great photographer Rankin.

Alex Box and Rankin worked together for Alex Box's make up book and according to my opinion (below) beauty photos are amazing!

Photographer, publisher and film director, Rankin established his reputation when he launched Dazed & Confused with his business partner Jefferson Hack in 1991.

From his iconic shot of Kylie lying naked and prostrate, to the Queen smiling enigmatically, Rankin’s iconic, intimate portraiture style, and his mischievous eye have gained him a reputation as one of the world's leading photographers.

Rising to every challenge, Rankin has never shied from portraying difficult subject matter, addressing issues from domestic violence to body image in both his personal work as well as charity and commercial projects. He made headlines again with his campaign for Dove showing women who differed from the usual stick-thin advertising stereotype. He has also shot prominent charity campaigns for Amnesty International, Everyman, Special Olympics, Oxfam, Teenage Cancer Trust, Refuge, The Teaching Awards, Women’s Aid, Women’s Vote, Breast Cancer Awareness and Youth Music.

In early 2009, Rankin embarked on his largest and most ambitious project to date; Rankin Live! Based at the Truman Brewery in London, Rankin combined a museum-scale retrospective spanning his 22-year career, with creating a photographic record of Britain in the 21st century. Photographing 1,500 members of the public, images were hanging on the exhibition wall within 15 minutes of the shutter being fired.

In October 2009 he published the books ‘Heidilicious' and ‘Rankin’s Cheeky’. ‘Heidilicious’ is a celebration of model, Heidi Klum, and Rankin’s photographic relationship over the last 7 years. From the early shoots to the present day, this book tracks their collaborations and inspirational campaigns. ‘Rankin’s Cheeky’ probes between innocent mischief and edgy erotica, paying homage to the female form. Rankin says simply, “There’s no point in dressing it up, I love women and I love taking photos. It’s more like a fantastic hobby than a job.”
Rankin lives in London with his wife Tuuli, and thirteen-year-old son, Lyle.

Önce Alex Box'tan bahsederek bir giriş yapmıştım. Şimdi de Alex Box'un makeup kitabı için Rankin tarafından çekilen fotoğrafları göstermek istedim. Gerçekten birbirinden harikalar. Makyajın başarısı dışında zaten Rankin'in fotoğraflarını da çok sevdiğim için bu kitap tam benlik. Bakın içiniz açılsın =)

Alex Box


Alex Box studied and exhibited as an installation artist before training to become a make-up artist, with her main focus on relationships between the body and the environment. As a make-up artist, she went on to explore this relationship between art, science, nature and the magical. Today, Alex creates out of the box looks for designers including Gareth Pugh, Alexander McQueen, Biba and Chanel.She is member of Illamasqua art team. She is one of my favourite make up artist. I think she is remarkable. Genarally My blog's subject is avant garde fashion photography/photographer but as you know you cannot think fashion photographs without make up. So that's why I decided to give some information about make up artists and first one is Alex Box!

Not: Hem ingilizce hem türkçe yazmak garip geliyor. Kısaltılmış olarak yazmak kolayıma gelecek =) Alex box benim favori makeup artistlerimden biri. Makyajı sadece yüze uygulanan şekli dışında vücuda yayarak kullanıyor.
Aslında bloguma avant garde moda fotoğrafları ve fotoğrafçılarını yayınlayıp/yazıyordum ama moda fotoğrafı denince, sizinde bildiğiniz gibi tek başına bir anlam ifade etmiyor. Makyaj da moda fotoğraflarının olmazsa olmaz unsurlarından biri olduğuna göre blogumda Makeup artistleri de tanıtmakta bir sakınca göremedim =) (Özellikle makeup artist diyorum makyöz yerine çünkü türkçesi bana garip geliyor.)

Asexual Revolution





















































"Asexual Revolution"
magazine: W
photographer: Steven Meisel

Adamın sevdiğim işlerinden biri. Aklıma pek çok şey getiren karelerden oluşuyor. Yine şikayetim var ama daha fazla yakın çekim görmek isterdim. Çok uzak. Kendimi yakın hissedemedim fotoğraflara. Ya da saat çok geç oldu artık yatmam lazım =)

In My Tribe













"In My Tribe"
Photographed by Steven Meisel

Models: Iselin Steiro, Caroline Tretini, Gemma Ward, Lily Donaldson, Sasha Pivovorova, Agyness Deyn

Fotografların temsil ettikleri müzik türleri, yaşam tarzları, kullanılan sembollerle fotoğrafa harika yansıtlmış olmasına karşın özellikle "Rave" tarzında modellerin daha çok eğleniyormuş gibi durmalarını ve gülmelerini tercih ederdim. Bana vermesi gereken mesajı nedense tam olarak vermedi. "Goth"da da üzgün bir duruş seziyorum. Fotoğraf ve temsil etmesi gereken tarzlar için kullanılan sembollerin doğruluğuna laf edemem ama modellerin ağzı, burnu üzerine konusmak fazla ağır olmaz umarım.
