Rankin x Latitude Festival

10.07.2019

Continuing our long-standing support for visual artists at the culturally focused Latitude Festival, this year Metro are delighted to be producing exhibition installation with Iconic British photographer and director, Rankin.

Famed for his iconic celebrity portraits, the portrait and fashion photographer and director has captured everyone from David Bowie to The Queen. But what’s it like to be shot by the legendary photographer?

In a cutting-edge partnership with Latitude, Rankin will deliver a keynote in the Music + Film Arena discussing three fearless decades behind the lens and the creative boundaries between art and artists. And in an iconic festival first, Rankin will also set up a live studio in the Faraway Forest where lucky festival goers can have their portraits taken by the trailblazer himself.

Metro has produced a wall-to-wall installation of Rankin’s most iconic portraits via Direct To Media on Foamex, that will provide the perfect setting for a pop-up portrait studio in the middle of the Faraway Forest.

This is an artist spanning cultures and generations; the creator of Cool Britannia who stuck around long after the party finished, and has now become an icon in his own right. Rankin x Latitude is a one-off opportunity to hear from and be photographed by one of the world’s most prolific photographers.
