Rankin has teamed up with the National Fostering Group to create a series of portraits to challenge the misconceptions of what it takes to be an eligible foster carer in the UK. 

The portrait series is part of the Faces of Fostering campaign that aims to shed light on fostering and, more importantly, who is eligible to be a foster carer, ousting outdated stereotypes and misinformation. Rankin is used to working with supermodels and celebrity subjects, but for this project he has laid down his fashion lens to capture 12 new portraits that "celebrate the true diversity in fostering".
