Reuben Wu

Reuben Wu is driven not just by the urge to create imagery, but by a desire to explore new places as if they were unknown territory, constantly open to serendipity and with an eye for the unnoticed and the hidden.


We are overwhelmed everyday by beautiful images of the familiar. I imagine these scenes transformed into undiscovered landscapes which renew our perceptions of our world.

Reuben Wu is a multi-disciplinary artist working in photography, motion and music. Coming from a background in design, he co-founded the band Ladytron, releasing six internationally-acclaimed albums as well as writing and producing music for Christina Aguilera and remixing others such as Nine Inch Nails and Blondie. The extensive touring introduced him to photography, which grew from a hobby into the career it is today. The notion of journey and discovery is central to his art, bound with his love for new technology and the opportunities it brings to modern storytelling. Reuben’s book LUX NOCTIS was published in Oct 2018 and has since been added to the archives of The Guggenheim Museum, The Metropolitan Museum and the Art Institute of Chicago. Reuben’s work has been published by National Geographic, Colossal, Wired, The Smithsonian and has been commissioned by clients such as Apple, Audi, GE and Samsung.
