'Veggie Dicks' – that's the wonderful topic creatively realized by still life duo ILKA & FRANZ @ Cosmopola for GUARDIAN WEEKEND.

Ilka&Franz are a German/Austrian photographer duo based in London (UK). Their work obscures the boundaries between portraiture and still life and is often humorous with an unexpected twist. While their unmistakable use of color is vibrant and bold, their conceptual undertones are often subtle and naive. Ilka & Franz draw their inspiration from pop culture, kitsch and surrealism as they put a playful spin on the ordinary. The duo works on editorial and commercial commissions in the UK and abroad.
