The Walker Art Gallery will host an exhibition by world renowned photographer Rankin.
ALIVE: In The Face of Death will run from Friday 17 May - 15 September and is the photographer’s look at death and mortality.
This collaboration between the Walker Art Gallery and Rankin has been developed by BBC North and BBC Two’s The Culture Show as media partner.
Part of the exhibition will feature images of everyday people who know they are running out of time. Through a series of powerful photographs Rankin has documented the stories of very special people.
Rather than focusing on death, ALIVE: In The Face of Death is also about celebrating life and diversity of character. The exhibition will also feature images of people who have pulled through against all the odds.
Visitors to the exhibition will be able to read the inspirational accounts of people in the image. ALIVE: In The Face Of Death will also be the subject of a landmark Culture Show documentary to coincide with the exhibition, capturing both the artistic process and emotion in telling such a story.
A key element to Rankin’s work has been to let people take control of how they are portrayed in the images.
This exhibition forms part of the LOOK/13: Liverpool International Photography Festival which launches on Friday 17 May and will see dozens of photographic exhibitions and events taking place across the city.
This is the second time National Museums Liverpool has worked with Rankin. In 2009 he visited World Museum as part of his Shoot Me, Rankin project which saw him photograph 1,000 people to form a portrait of modern Britain. At World Museum Rankin photographed dozens of Liverpudlians.
