“Mickey Mouse amazed me as a kid and Disney Fantasia made me want to be involved in film. He is much more than a character, but a symbol of optimism, hope and inspiration for people from every walk of life, and you can see his influence in my photography over the years. This book pays tribute to the inspirational impact he has had on a generation and his journey from simple sketch to cultural icon over 90 years. We’ve had a lot of fun making it, owe a debt of gratitude to those involved and I hope we raise a lot of money for an incredible charity.” – Rankin
“Together for Short Lives is so honoured to join the very special celebrations for Mickey’s 90th anniversary. Mickey Mouse is loved by millions of children and families all over the globe, and his anniversary celebrations are now helping to bring even more magic and love to the UK’s 49,000 seriously ill children and young people. Happy birthday Mickey Mouse, and thank you – your support for our charity is priceless.” – Barbara Gelb OBE, CEO for Together for Short Lives.
Photographer and director Rankin is pleased to have supported the shortly to be released book – “Mickey Mouse & Me” celebrity portraits that celebrates the 90th anniversary of ‘True Original’ Mickey Mouse in aid of the charity – Together for Short Lives.
