Rankin’s website states “For Youth Music’s 10th Anniversary musicians photographed by Rankin created an original piece of artwork based on one of the photographer’s iconic portraits. Two years in the making, the Destroy / Rankin project involved over 70 musicians and visual artists…. Asked to ‘destroy’ the photographs, the artists created a portfolio of deeply personal reflections on their images, with submissions ranging from paintings and drawings to video and collage making up a unique body of collaborative art. The series was exhibited and auctioned at Phillips de Pury as well as published in a book In 2009.”

Dazed states: “In addition to the exhibition and auction, a 1,000 limited edition hardback book edited by Dazed & Confused editor Rod Stanley has been produced that is available from Youth Music. It includes an exclusive behind the scenes DVD featuring interviews with Rankin and more than 25 of the featured artists (a taster can be seen below). There are also exclusive essays by Rankin and Fred Deakin (Lemon Jelly / Airside), and interviews including Jarvis Cocker & Peter Saville, Jefferson Hack & Michael Stipe, Beth Ditto & Miranda Sawyer, and Mike Figgis & Marianne Faithfull”
