The BBC has announced its plan to air a Great British Bake-Off-inspired photography show, hosted by Rankin, where see six amateur photographers will compete for the winner’s title.

The four-part photography challenge-themed television series titled “The Great British Photography Challenge” will be hosted by British photographer Rankin as he sets challenges and provides feedback to the participants.

Rankin is famous for co-founding Dazed and Confused Magazine in 1991 and for his portrait and fashion work. He has worked with celebrities, like Kate Moss, Heidi Klum, Madonna, David Bowie, Queen Elizabeth, and many more.

In preparation for the apocalypse, survivalists turned to YouTube to learn how to best live off-grid, while conspiracy theorists flocked to the French village of Bugarach to access a mountain thought to be the landing site of a UFO that would rescue them from disaster. In Taipei, art student Pin Chun Kuo was far more accepting of her fate, and settled on photography as the medium for her salvation. 

“People kept telling me that artists are never recognized until after they’re dead,” she says.
