in 2008, at an anonymous studio in North London, an extraordinary photo shoot was unfolding.
Rankin, one of the world's leading photographers, was aiming to produce a truly striking image for Marie Claire's historic 20th anniversary edition.
His subject was not a celebrity icon or a supermodel, but a 24-year-old credit controller from Enfield, North London, on her first modelling assignment.
And it wasn't just her inexperience setting young Kelly Knox apart. Born without a left hand and lower arm, she was the winner of BBC3's competition to find the UK's top disabled model.

Kelly has modelled in catwalk shows such as London Fashion Week and Pakistan Fashion Week and featured in advertising campaigns. In advertising, she was the face of V05 hairdryers in the UK, and was part of the Samsung Angles campaign. Knox was also the face of Vivi + Vivi Jewelry which appears in magazines such as Grazia and Heat.
