British photographer Rankin recently unveiled his first commercial NSFW exhibition in Amsterdam, Naked, with newly acquired Dutch gallery partner, Kunsthuis Amsterdam.

Internationally recognized for his nude photography in the late nineties and early noughties, his new collection of images takes on a darker, more lavish S&M tone. With a more streamlined focus on the relationship between eroticism and death, the new collaboration is sure to bring back the photographer into the public eye.

Already under his belt are collaborations with Hunger Magazine, Coco de Mer and more famously, capturing supermodel Kate Moss. After recently collaborating on a new unisex fragrance called 'S&X', Rankin released a series of sexually heightened film shorts. Even more recently, the photographer produced a series of intimate nudes with Heidi Klum.

“I’m very excited by my recent work," he says. "It feels the purest it has been since the '90s, albeit much darker." Whether it's working with visuals or still photography, a slight humor is maintained in his work, never taking the images or concept too seriously.

In that regard, Naked is slated to be a fun exploration of nudity, more specifically trying to remove the taboo of exposing human sexuality.
