Powerful portraits of people living in the face of death.

British photographer Rankin made his name as a celebrity photographer. However, his new show at the Walker Art Gallery investigates our perception of mortality and how we cope with what he refers to as ‘life in the face of death’.

He put out a call in Merseyside asking for subjects who were ‘running out of time’ or who had gone through life-threatening experiences. Those chosen have their story recounted in the show alongside their portrait. The whole project will be the subject of a Culture Show documentary for BBC2, screened this summer.
