Today I am interviewing Brian Rankin. Brian is a professional photographer living in Toronto, Canada. He currently works as a photographer for Holt Renfrew, and his work was recently featured in an editorial for Yoko Mag, entitled “Tangled Up In Blue.” He grew up in a small town in Ontario and spent his summers out east in an even smaller town. He moved to Toronto when he was 18 to pursue a degree in English at the University of Toronto and somehow found his way into professional photography through this. When he’s not doing cool photography work, he’s playing guitar in a punk band or riding his bike without a helmet.
Today we sit down and talk about his personal experiences with food, how his upbringing *sort of* shaped his art and cooking, and what it’s like to be a photographer during the ride of social media food photos.
