Rankin: Spirit of Ecstasy collectionThu, 03 Nov 2011 00:00:00 -0700
Earlier this year, Rolls-Royce announced its collaboration with renowned photographer Rankin in celebration of the Spirit of Ecstasy centenary. Over the course of the collaboration, Rankin has snapped 100 images all inspired by the Spirit of Ecstasy – the defining feature of Rolls-Royce's face.
Exploring the femininity of the ‘Flying lady', Rankin worked with a variety of materials, fabrics and paint to create the portraits and other works. The images feature women ‘of a range of ages and cultures, each chosen for their symbolic representation of the femininity, grace and mystery of the Spirit of Ecstasy'.
A selection of the images will be shown as part of an exhibition at the Rankin Gallery in Los Angeles, California from the November 16th to 23rd, 2011. The remaining images will be shown on the Rolls-Royce stand at the 2011 Los Angeles Auto Show from the 18th through to the 27th of November.
