Over a three-weeks period, starting today, twenty of you can be assured to have their photo taken by Rankin live at KaDeWe Berlin on Saturday, April 30th 2016, no cueing needed on the day as we will schedule you in prior to the event.
Here is how it works: Take a selfie or upload an interesting portrait of you and let us know what makes you a #portraitofberlin. Try again the following week for another chance.
Show us who are the people making Berlin such a great city to live in. Collectively, we are creating a #PortraitofBerlin. Each of the three Sundays, between 10.04.16 & 27.04.16 at 5pm that weeks portraits will be announced. We will pick out five, another five and then ten more of you, week by week, with the last chance on Sunday, April 24th. Follow KaDeWe Berlin on Facebook, Instagram or Twitter or just watch out on #portraitofberlin for further information. You can start sending your pictures now!
Berlin is not about beauty, it’s about character.
“I think every city has its aesthetics doesn’t it?” Rankin told WWD in an interview last week.
As the interview continues: “I don’t know what it will be like in Berlin. I haven’t been in a while. There are a lot of British people that go to Berlin. Artists make a beeline because it’s a place to create art. It’s a creative community. I’ve got friends who live there full time. Loads of my friends have gone and spent time there. I like Germany, in general. I do a lot with Heidi Klum, obviously. It’s a great place to visit.” “I love taking pictures of different people,” he said. “To represent it on the store hoarding while it’s being redone, it’s really a big thing. It’s a real treat. It’s what I enjoy doing the most — taking pictures of people. I love the idea, it’s not celebrities. I love photographing everybody. I like people for the sake of what they are as people, not fame.”
