Untitled (Ming With Sword)
A hybrid of photography, digital manipulation, and graphics, Anderson & Low’s series Manga Dreams takes its cue from a strain of contemporary youth culture’s costume, hairstyle, and attitude inspired by Japanese comics and animation. Working collaboratively with their subjects to re-create the archetypal characters found in manga and anime, Anderson & Low were left asking themselves if the phenomenon they witnessed on the streets of East Asia and harnessed in their studio was art imitating life or life imitating art.
