Looking at the world differently - TED Talk by Anderson & Low

14 July 2017

Congratulations to Anderson & Low for the fascinating TED talk on being brave enough to see the magic and creativity in the most unlikely places. Using three completely distinct projects to illustrate their point, they explain the ideas and inspiration behind ‘Chrysalis’, ‘Manga Dreams’ and ‘Voyages’.

‘The real voyage of discovery consists not in seeking new landscapes, but in having new eyes’ Marcel Proust.


Photographers Jonathan Anderson and Edwin Low have been collaborating as Anderson & Low since 1990, and are known for bringing drama and mythic qualities to their wide-ranging work.  Recurrent concepts bring unity to their output as a whole, whilst stylistic shifts allow them the best expression for each new project. They were official artists for the London 2012 Olympiad, were invited to create an art project based around the James Bond film Spectre, and created images for Star Wars VII; their project Manga Dreams was exhibited in the Venice Biennale.
