Exhibition and documentary

Top photographer Rankin has been tackling the subject of death head-on for his latest exhibition: Alive: In The Face Of Death at Liverpool's Walker Gallery. The Culture Show had unique behind-the-scenes access as Rankin focussed his lens on people who are living with a terminal illness, or who have been forced to confront their mortality through personal or professional experience.

The documentary captures the stories behind Rankin's powerful images, and reveals an intimate and thoughtful side of one of Britain's top photographers. Watch on BBC iPlayer until 20 July 2013.
