KATE Moss, Rolling Stones, the Queen, and now a 'proud' Bracknell paramedic has joined the star-studded line-up of people pictured by world-renowned photographer Rankin.

Local paramedic Stuart Brookfield, will stand tall above the streets of London in billboard pictures paying tributes to those who have been vital in the fight against Covid-19.

The South Central Ambulance Service employee is among 12 people whose pictures will grace bus stops, roadside billboards, and iconic pedestrian areas such as Piccadilly Lights in central London.

Mr Brookfield said: “I feel honoured to be given the chance to take part in this campaign and to be chosen to represent all my fellow colleagues.

"It has been a surreal experience attending the Rankin studio in London for a photoshoot – not something you do everyday in our line of work.

"I’m really thankful for all the support I’ve been given in order to become a paramedic and fulfil my dream and incredibly proud to be part of a national campaign for NHS workers, highlighting the significant role we all play."

The series of powerful portraits of NHS staff from a number of job roles will be shown throughout the week to mark 72nd birthday of the NHS this weekend.

Alongside Mr Brookfield, the photographs by Rankin include an ICU consultant, a Covid-19 critical care nurse, a midwife, a psychiatrist, a hospital porter, a COVID-19 ward cleaner, a GP, a pharmacist, a district nurse, a 111 call centre worker and a chief information officer.

All staff in these areas have played a vital role in managing the response to Covid-19 and supporting people impacted by the disease.

British photographer, director and cultural provocateur, Rankin, said: “As the coronavirus pandemic began to unfold, I was moved by the incredible efforts of people across the NHS and I wanted to document who they are and their role in fighting this disease.

"Taking a portrait is a unique and intimate experience, even with social distancing in place. Everyone had their own inspiring story which to them was just doing their job.

"I hope these images portray the resilience and courage they show every day in the face of real adversity.”

The portraits were taken from a safe distance and with the photographer behind a sheet to allow for social distancing.

All those photographed were pictured without their PPE to reveal the people behind the masks.
