Thomas Wylde fashions serve as the backdrop for a unique new book named "Ten Times Rosie" by famed photographer Rankin (2009's Heidi Klum tribute, "Heidilicious"), featuring ten different motifs of a single model subject, Britain's Rosie Huntington-Whiteley. Rankin's set ups range from a full body black body paint set up to a dramatic Death Valley photoshoot to a set of high glamour interiors ("Wicked Way") to a stunning snake tattoo session and even a punk rock motif (complete with RHW in full mohawk mode!)
Rankin's photographic style is at times reminiscent of other high-end photogs - Herb Ritts in the Black Summer session and pure Scavullo in Snake Bite - which may actually be part of its glory. What impresses, is how one photographer using a single model ends up with ten completely different themes, all of which are compact and effective.
The book, which appears to have begun as a promotion for the Thomas clothing line (even when there are no clothes in some of the pictures, of course), stands just as well on its own as a conceptual photo document as well as another successful chapter in the photographic journey of Rankin.
