If you have ever imagined your portrait adorning the walls of an art gallery, then this summer you might just get your heart’s desire. In August, the notion of instant gratification is being pushed to radical new extremes with the hugely ambitious Rankin Live!, an ever-changing exhibition in which you will get the chance to have your portrait shot, framed and exhibited in record-breaking time.
As the accelerated pace of the digital age reaches full velocity, Rankin is teaming up with Dazed to create the definitive quick-fire “documentary” of what it is to be British today. We are looking for 1,000 people aged 13* and over whose distinctive look and idiosyncratic style will help to create a unique photographic record of Britain in the 21st century. Look sharp and your image could be sharing gallery space with the likes of Kate Moss a mere 15 minutes after Rankin’s shutter has closed.
To be shot for this this groudbreaking project, send us a photograph flaunting your individuality and stylistic flair. If you are chosen, your portrait will be exhibited alongside iconic images of everyone from Vivienne Westwood to the Queen of England in Rankin’s first major retrospective. For £50 you will also recieve a print of your portrait, and with all the profits being donated to Oxfam there is every reason why you should put yourself in the picture.
Rankin Live! takes place in August.
