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.

When Blend asked me to make flower still lifes for the return of the spring, I realized that finding new ways to interpret this classic theme would be very difficult.

I didn't even try to make flowers look pretty. Instead I just build my own little drug lab to turn flowers into narcotics. It's not such a wild idea. After all, most drugs are made from plants.
