HUNGER’s favourite Marco x Rankin collaborations

In celebration of their new book, 'Marco Antonio x Rankin', we look back at the pair’s seminal works.

Rankin and Marco are an unstoppable duo. Founder of HUNGER, Rankin has been at the centre of fashion for the past three decades, photographing everyone from Naomi Harris, Kate Moss to the Queen. Born in Brazil, Marco is the self-taught master of the make-up brush, who regularly works with HUNGER. Collaborating since 2015, the pair have created some of beauty’s biggest and boldest works.

Marco Antonio x Rankin is a beautiful exploration of the duo’s artistic vision, containing imagery spanning across their working relationship.

The book also includes an “in conversation” between Rankin and Marco, discussing not only their work together but also where make-up and beauty sits in today’s visual culture.

“I’ve always been dedicated to using magazines and publishing to find and showcase amazing new talents. Having worked with Marco now for several years he is the perfect example of finding someone with that spark, where you know they are not only talented but have a true point of view. I’m always excited to work with him, it is collaborations like ours where the most exciting images are taken.”  Rankin said on working with Marco.

“I knew it would be hardcore experience working with Rankin. Hardcore meaning more of a challenge. I love being challenged and I consider myself a workoholic so being around a photographer that is a workoholic himself is inspiring.” Continued Marco.

Marco Antonio x Rankin will be published in October 2019.
