An acclaimed photographer, publisher, and film director with a mischievous eye, Rankin established himself internationally by founding the breakthrough magazine Dazed & Confused with his business partner Jefferson Hack in 1991. For
Destroy / Rankin, over 70 of the world s biggest musicians and visual artists have created a new body of artwork based on Rankin's iconic portraits of musicians. Asked to destroy the photographs, artists including Michael Stipe, U2, The Gossip,
Beck, Jarvis Cocker, Debbie Harry, Kylie Minogue, Basement Jaxx, Goldfrapp, and Marianne Faithfull have created a portfolio of deeply personal reflections on their music and images. This unique body of collaborative art ranges from paintings and drawings to collage. While some of the musicians have destroyed the artwork themselves, others have worked with visual artists such as Damien Hirst, Matt Collishaw, and Douglas Gordon. Destroy / Rankin also contains five essays on the relationship between art and
music that feature the perspectives of the included artists along with key cultural commentators such as Mike Figgis, Peter Saville, Miranda Sawyer, and Rankin himself. This limited edition book also includes a 30-minute DVD with behind the scenes footage, providing a rare insight into Rankin's work and creative process. Destroy / Rankin is a reflection on the brilliant music portraiture of one of the
world s leading photographers. The book is a collaboration between Rankin and Youth Music, the UK s largest charity that provides music to socially disadvantaged young people, to celebrate its tenth anniversary.
