Leica Camera and the renowned British fashion photographer Rankin will celebrate the release of the third installment of S Magazine: The Rankin Issue with an exclusive invite-only event on January 22nd at the Rankin Gallery on Melrose Avenue in Los Angeles. The private event will feature photographs taken from the latest issue of S Magazine.
Using only the Leica S camera, Rankin, whose career has spanned over two decades, collaborated with nine individual hair stylists, to create a series of striking images and a collection of diverse fashion stories which are communicated across the latest 200-page edition of S Magazine. The exhibition will be on display through March 2013.
“I was using and loved the S-System camera.” says Rankin. And he explains the idea behind the new S Magazin: “I’d always thought it would be interesting to do a hair book where you take hairdressers and you give them the opportunity to do anything they want.”
