Rankin in conversation with Dylan Jones

Hay Festival 2022, 

John Rankin Waddell, known as Rankin, is an exceptional photographer, publisher and film director. From the Queen of England to the Queen of Pop, his images have become part of contemporary iconography, evidence of his passion for all aspects of modern culture and its representation in the photographed image. In 2020 during the Covid-19 pandemic Rankin created a series of portraits of key health workers to highlight the essential services provided by the NHS while celebrating the individual subjects for their contribution to society. He speaks to journalist and author Dylan Jones.
