Made by MENDOAbout the books
Who will recognize a great book better than a bookstore? A bookstore run by graphic designers. Here’s why: at MENDO we get market feedback seven days a week, we are blessed to be surrounded by a bunch of talented, inspiring people – photographers, writers and publishers – and after being a bookstore for more than 15 years, we can easily say we know what book aficionados are looking for. Don’t you agree that initiating, creating and realizing jaw-dropping books now, only comes natural?
A MENDO publication is a well-designed book with visually stunning creative content, browsed by people to be amazed and inspired. The subject-matter is one of our pre-defined curated categories, fashion, photography, interior, sport, lifestyle, food and traveling. In general, a MENDO book is a piece of furniture in itself.
The first retrospective of Rankin’s full career, drawing from thirty years of work
A photographer who defined the aesthetics and attitudes of the 1990s and 2000s, Rankin’s influence continues to be seen everywhere, from fashion editorials to cinematography, graphic design, and music videos for artists from Iggy Azalea to Miley Cyrus.
Edited by the photographer himself, and drawing from thirty years of work, this is the first retrospective of Rankin’s full career. From early provocative portraiture in the late 1980s, through his founding with Jefferson Hack of the fashion bibles of the 1990s and 2000s, Dazed & Confused and AnOther Magazine, to his pioneering of independent television and film through Hunger and his iconic monographs on Heidi Klum and Rosie Huntington-Whiteley, Rankin’s work has defined the face of popular culture for generations.
Rankin’s work has defined the face of popular culture for generations
Presented in reverse chronology, with a nod to a continuing spirit of contradiction, Unfashionable moves from Rankin’s most iconic portraiture and documentary work through his nudes, his groundbreaking fashion work, and back to his earliest Polaroids. With contributions from Rankin and several of his influences, peers, subjects, and admirers, this is the definitive look at one of the most profound influences on fashion and photography working today.
Rankin is a photographer living and working in London. He cofounded the magazines Dazed & Confused and AnOther with Jefferson Hack, and his fashion photography has been published everywhere from his own publications to Elle, Vogue, Harper’s Bazaar, Esquire, GQ, RollingStone, and Wonderland.
