Sketch. Shoot. Retouch. Repeat.

Ilka & Franz are a German/ Austrian photographer duo based in London (UK). Their distinctive work blurs the lines between portraiture and still life as they discover a stillness in their living subjects and a human aspect in objects. The pair, who are partners in both work and personal life, are both largely self-taught. They art direct, shoot and retouch.

“Most of our work begins with pen and paper when we sketch each shot. We often work with set, prop and wardrobe stylists to realise our vision.”

Ilka & Franz’s work has been featured by Elle NL, Konbini, Trendland, Schön Magazine, Wallpaper Magazine and many more. The duo work on editorial and commercial commissions in the UK and abroad.
