Celebrated portrait photographer Rankin, who has shot hundreds of famous faces including the Queen and Kate Moss, has said his latest project photographing hospital workers on the frontline of the coronavirus crisis moved him to tears.
The photographer travelled round the country at the height of the pandemic to take pictures of 12 people playing a vital role in the NHS response to mark the anniversary of the health service.
The portraits include a cleaner, porter, pharmacist, nurse, midwife and 111 call handler, as well as an ICU consultant, midwife, paramedic and IT worker.
The collection will be showcased around the country on billboards, at bus stops and at the Piccadilly Lights in Piccadilly Circus to mark the 72nd anniversary of the NHS.
