British photographer Rankin is kicking off the year by inviting people across the UK to participate in his project, Rankin Live!, attempting to document Britons ‘with a distinctive style, sense of British eccentricity and enthusiasm’. He will select the most original thousand applicants, through an open call process, and instantly print the portraits on site at his museum scale exhibition in August. Each portrait will cost £50 and all profits will go to Oxfam.
