After photographing the world's most famous faces, from Kate Moss and Madonna to Tony Blair and the Queen, Rankin has now turned his lens on real people with terminal illnesses. Alive: In the Face of Death is at the Walker Gallery until 15 September. The exhibition has been documented by BBC Two's The Culture Show for an episode to be broadcast later in the year and is part of Liverpool's Look/13 photography festival.
Just read the 'link' ... what an interesting exhibition. Makes one realise how lucky one is - some people are very unlucky with their health - and yet so brave in the photographs. I was in the Walker earlier this month and am sorry it wasn't on then. I did ask if they had anything special on and the chap said 'just the rubbish upstairs'. He was meaning a 'modern installation' NOT the Victorian Art (which I love)! And it was rubbish too). Hope your link will alert a few more people to what should be something very thought provoking and worth visiting.
