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.
De Jeugd van Tegenwoordig is the freshest hip hop act of the Netherlands. We had a lot of fun during the shoot and it was a pleasure to meet them. Anyway, I wanted to play on the fact the rappers "spit" their lyrics, "spuggen" in Dutch.
