Rankin Destroy Analysis

The 'Destroy Rankin' project was to mark the 10th anniversary of Youth Music, the UK's largest music charity for young people. Musicians were photographed by Rankin then they 'destroyed' one of their photographs. Over 90 Musicians were asked to take part in the project. They could destroy the image in any way they wished, whether it be ripping it up, painting on it or to express themselves on the photo.

I love the way his work is so imaginative and creative, and the not one piece of work is the same, each individual picture has its own response to 'destroy'. My favourite piece is Debbie Harry's photograph, link, I like the use of different materials such as masking tape and string, it makes you want to feel the work as its gone from a 2D photograph to a edited piece of work. I love the fact that these materials were used as they are usually used to fix things, whereas in this work is it used to 'destroy' the image.
