Ilka & Franz

Ilka & Franz are a German/ Austrian photographer duo based in London (UK). Their work blurs the lines between portraiture and still life and is often humorous with an unexpected twist. While their unmistakable use of colour is vibrant and bold, their conceptual undertones are often subtle and of child-like naivety. Ilka & Franz draw their inspiration from pop culture, kitsch and surrealism as they put a playful spin on the ordinary. The duo work on editorial and commercial commissions in the UK and abroad.

Almost all of their shoots involve an element of motion; their moving image work carries that same distinctive visual style that makes their stills so unique. Recent shots for Kadewe and Wembley Park show that their inimitable style is in no way compromised by using a different medium.
