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.

Photo series for the "Brain Issue". Somehow I can't help myself trying to make humoristic and catchy images, even when dealing with heavy subjects.
The "tilt" image illustrates a rather dry article about a lecture on brains. I found it interesting to approach a cartoon classic in a dry scientific manner. 
The hand removing a Play-Doh tumor illustrates an interview with a brain surgeon.
