Ilka & Franz are a German/ Austrian photo & director duo based in London (UK). Their work blurs the lines between disciplines as they apply their aesthetic and humour to still life, portraiture and film. 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 shoot, build, style and retouch and work on commercial and editorial commissions in the UK and abroad.
