Rankin Tackles Ageism for Impression Mag

Iconic photographer Rankin highlights the abuses that social media apps has on our self-image

Rankin Tackles Ageism for Impression Mag

Editor in Chief, Kenneth Richard of  Impression -  the magazine where Fashion Gets Creative - celebrates its 4th volume by commissioning unique works from a cross section of global artists, authors, photographers and directors and in response to conversations Richard was having with industry creatives. 

 “Fashion creatives hold a mirror up to society to reflect aspirational dreams that society doesn’t even know they want yet. It’s frustrating to see microphones held up to these worldly, educated creatives asking them about trends and models. High time we heard their thoughts on real world issues and how those issues impact their creation process.”

This focus on issues is present throughout the magazine and iconic photographer Rankin tackles ageism and the abuses of social media apps that pervert self-image with his shoot and in interview 

“People are becoming brands, these two-dimensional versions of themselves with everything touched up and not a mark on their face. But when you see children doing that, you start to think this is going to be really damaging for their self-image.”
