The Glaswegian photographer known mononymously as Rankin has revealed a new exhibition delving into the issue of food waste. As the COP26 summit continues,  the fashion and portrait photographer has displayed his latest series of images around Glasgow in the hope it will increase awareness. 

Having photographed some of the most famous people in the world including Queen Elizabeth II, Madonna and Britney Spears, Rankin's latest project is a little less glamorous. Using food that would’ve otherwise ended up in the bin, Rankin and his team have created sculptures symbolizing plastic bottles to highlight the damaging impact of food waste on the future of our planet.
