In his first collaboration with the In The Pink gallery in Loulé, internationally acclaimed photographer Rankin presents Pure, an exhibition of a selection of works that represent the creative approach of his professional path.

The showing offers an interplay between light and dark, life and death, through works that create a broad aesthetic dialogue. Curated to show Rankin’s work and vision in its purest form, the works on display are not the visibly clean photographs of social media or advertising, but rather an exploration of personality, performance and, in many cases, natural imperfection.

“This exhibition is a fresh realisation with my fascination with life and death, and the real vs. the unreal. These are themes that have fascinated me most throughout my career,” explains the artist.

“As I get older, all these ideas become more intertwined in my imagination. To showcase my new floral works alongside archival beauty and portraiture is to draw a line in theme and intent. I always strive to find the reality in beauty. The real person behind any image I take. This is the purest my photography can be.”

His photographs have been published in numerous international magazines including Elle, Vogue, Esquire, GQ, Rolling Stone and Wonderland, and displayed in galleries and museums around the world including MoMA, in New York, and the Victoria & Albert Museum in London.
