LONDON (Reuters) – Rankin, British photographer best known for his celebrity and model shots, turned her lens to the subject of death in an online exhibit that opened on Monday

«Lost for Words» consists of portraits of people on which are projected images of their deceased relatives. Along with the pictures, they talk about their experiences of grief and loss in video interviews

“The two things that happen to everyone, is that you are born and you die We all talk about birth as if it goes out of style None of us talk about death », said Rankin – nom complet John Rankin Waddell – to Reuters in October while working on the show at his north London studio.

Some of the topics are well known, including Stephen Lawrence's mother and brother, a black teen from London who was murdered in 1993 during an unprovoked racist attack

Others were chosen for the stories they had to share, including London mother of four Ouida Wickramaratne, who lost his son from 17 years, Daniel, because of COVID-19 in April.

She posed in front of a photo showing Daniel, with cerebral palsy, on vacation in Spain last year in the sea on a floating chair

She broke down when she first saw the image projected on the wall The photoshoot showed how far we've come since then, she told Reuters

“I arrive there, cause I couldn't even have done this in the first few months It's been six months now I'm getting there”

The exhibition, which aims to encourage people to overcome the taboo of death and to talk about it, can be seen on www.
