Currently running in New York City and set to tour the country and Europe later this year, the exhibit is designed to educate visitors about life with hemophilia. In addition to portraits of individuals with hemophilia, caregivers and HCPs shot by Rankin, “Portraits of Progress” traces the evolution of treating the disease from the 1940s until the present day.
“As a photographer, I’ve gravitated towards campaigns which can make a difference,” Rankin said in a statement. “Hemophilia is something I thought I understood, but I realized there was so much to learn. Listening to these exceptional stories and learning about the extraordinary journey of this community was a true education and privilege.”
“Portraits of Progress” represents Rankin’s first live U.S. exhibition since prior to the pandemic. Over the course of his career, he has photographed David Bowie, Queen Elizabeth, Kate Moss and countless other celebrities and dignitaries.
