Recommends: Brian Vu

Currently transfixed to the work of Brooklyn-based photographer and collagist Brian Vu. Vivid and saturated in colour, his images aren't as positive as they initially appear, often referencing heavier themes such as religion, the afterlife and human relationships with others and ourselves. The self-taught artist has described past escapist visions as "praying to god on an acid trip". Working with the bare essentials including a point and shoot, Canon 7D and his phone, much of Vu's brilliance is often the result of putting "accidents" through post-production.

Admire selections from his folio below, purchase two of his artist zines, True False and New Guilt, or stalk him on instagram.
