Usually shooting more edgy and grungy things, this time, photographer Rankin shot something different. As a series of collaborations with British actress Nathalie Emmanuel, Rankin and his in-house creative agency The Full Service brings a soft touch of lovey-dovey mood for London shoe brand Dune’s SS17 campaign.   The SS17 campaign for Dune is an on-set love story set against the backdrop of iconic London landmarks.
