    Los Angeles welcomed famed Scottish photographer, RANKIN, to the M + B Gallery last Thursday for The Macallan & RANKIN Polaroid Exhibition. Last year, the fine whisky maker invited RANKIN to capture The Macallan Estate through a series of Polaroids resulting in 1,000 original works by the photog and 1,000 unique bottles of The Macallan Fine Oak 30 year old whisky each bearing one of original RANKIN Polaroids. RANKIN says of the project:

    "This project is very special to me for two reasons. Firstly, I've been able to come back to the country of my birth and portray its beauty through one of the most ambitious projects I've ever attempted. The second reason is that this collection marks the full stop after Polaroid, as we head into the digital age" []

    Hollywood finest poured into the gallery to see the original photographs on display and to sip fine single malt whiskey cocktails of course. Guests included Heidi Klum, Adrien Brody, Jesse Spencer, Lisa Edelstein, Steven Cojocaru, Rosetta Getty, David Fahey, and Lisa Edelstein.
