2 x Tokyo

WassinkLundgren are Thijs groot Wassink and Ruben Lundgren.  They are Dutch.  One of them lives in London.  The other lives in Beijing and is 6'5" (or 2 metres exactly if you're going metric).  They have exhibited all over the world and won numerous awards for their ingenious work and I just had to write about it. Their tactics are wonderfully guerilla and they use their duo status to maximum advantage, like in the series above where they captured the same subject at the same time from different angles. Their work has frequently been described as mischievous and playful.  They say they don't set out with a big idea that governs their approach.  They get excited by ideas that could fail because they say, if you set out knowing something will work, you're learning nothing new.  Enough said.  Wassinklundgren
