Seven Photographs that Changed Fashion

Rankin remakes a selection of influential fashion images taken by the world's most iconic fashion photographers of the Twentieth Century. He explores and recreates seven provocative images which have had an impact on the world of fashion photography.

Herb Ritts - The face of Dolce & Gabanna, David Gandy, poses for Rankin's remake of 'Fred with Tires'.

Cecil Beaton - Hat Box

Erwin Blumenfeld - Heidi Klum works it for Rankin's raunchy interpretation on this abstract Vogue cover.

Richard Avedon - Erin O'Connor poses as Dovima with Elephants

David Bailey - Rankin's girlfriend, Tuuli, takes the place of Jane Shrimpton in this classically beautiful shot.

Helmut Newton - Shot in the Rue Abriot Jade Parfitt makes a perfect angular and androgynous model for this Helmut Newton remake.

Guy Bourdin - Rankin adds a touch of Matrixesque to this already provocative and sexual image.
