Rankin Comes Full Circle With “Less Is More” Exhibition in Germany (NSFW)

The name Rankin resonates with the ‘90s – a time when creativity was at a cultural peak and Kate Moss was not much more than a fresh-faced model in the making.

The look of heroin chic was on the rise and grunge was all the rage, but you wouldn’t have had to tell him twice. Back in 1992, along with Jefferson Hack, the duo started one of the world’s most influential magazines, Dazed & Confused.

The legendary British photographer’s work has tapped into every creative orifice with an experimental and unconventional eye that has stripped away social norms – and needless to say, it still has the same powerful effect.

His latest exhibition, “Less Is More,” offers a retrospective of his extensive range of work that starts with early imagery from Dazed & Confused, all the way to his more conceptual pieces. The Ulrich Ptak-curated exhibition features everything from explorations of death to images of intrinsic masks and the gigantic frieze, now showcasing at the Kunsthalle Rostock in Germany.

We caught up with the photographer/director/publishing mogul to discuss how he’s still inspired after 30 years in the business, his process of capturing images and the idea of today’s instant share mentality.
