Simon Wald-Lasowski is a freelance photographer and art director. He makes colorful, fun, twisted work by use of bricolage, word play and ‘cliché bending’. Lighthearted at first sight, his images often reveal a certain depth on second inspection. His approach is always very personal, which blur the boundaries between autonomous and commissioned work.

To brighten up the story I combined old footage from the school with colourful school supplies that children often love to buy before the start of the school year.
