Royal London has partnered with the British portrait and fashion photographer Rankin to encourage the conversation around death with a free digital exhibition, Lost for Words.

Opening 16 November, the subject of the digital exhibition is death - a word that seems to be on our lips now more than ever as we continue to live through a global pandemic.

While we grow accustomed to hearing numbers, stats and data on a daily basis, the harsh reality of personal loss weighs far more heavily than any facts and figures ever can.

And so with that thought, Royal London and Rankin are tackling the taboo surrounding death as they believe it’s time to change the way we think about our own mortality and the mortality of our loved ones.

'Lost for Words' aims to encourage a vital dialogue on bereavement, to honour those we have lost and help us enjoy the time we have with those we love. Shot by Rankin himself, it is made up of a series of photographs of people superimposed next to images of loved ones they have lost, bringing together the departed and those left behind. It also includes an interview series and short film discussing the importance of talking about death and planning for the inevitable.

There will be a live event Q&A hosted by Andrea Fox with Royal London, Rankin and special guests on 25 November.
