Rankin Photo Challenge: Disconnect / Week 2

Still sick of content? It's Week 2 of Rankin's Photo Challenge.

Boredom is the key to creativity. What we want you to do is to disconnect. To look around you. To question your relationship to your social media accounts and your screen. To use them in a genuine, meaningful way. And only if you want to.

Last week we saw so many incredible submissions for the first challenge, where Rankin asked you to submit your self-portraits. Rankin will be sharing some of his favorite submissions on HUNGER at the end of the week.  But now we’re ready for Week 2.

If you want to use Instagram, you can tag us @hungermagazine or @rankinarchive. And if you don’t, you can email

Week 2: SHADOW

By now you’ve probably photographed everything in your house. From a tin of baked beans to your dog or even your grandmother. This week’s photography challenge asks you to utilise the universe’s greatest natural resource – light.

I want to see the creative, innovative and interesting images comprised only of shadows. Your subject could be your flatmate, your dog or even an inanimate object. It can be dramatic or comedic – the choice is yours!
