Combing on Os Gemeos' blog last night, we found some great documentary photos that famed Wim Wenders took of the twins painting inside a German rail tunnel. The series was shot for the “Out Sides” project and street art event held in Wüppertal 2006, and recently shown at the 20/Out, according to Os Gemeos' site. The photos are dramatic, with the same iconic work that Os Gemeos has been known for throughout the years. More images after the jump...
