Inez van Lamsweerde & Vinoodh Matadin / Pretty Much Everything

Inez van Lamsweerde & Vinoodh Matadin / Pretty Much Everything /

photographs 1985-2010
25 June 2010 until 15 September 2010 at Foam

Inez and Vinoodh began their work together in 1986 in Amsterdam. Now, 25 years later, with their campaigns for fashion houses such as YSL, Chanel, Balmain, Gucci, Louis Vuitton and Chloé, and with regular publications in W Magazine, Vogue and The New York Times, they are amongst the most important photographers in the world today. They are amongst the very few artists that have successfully crossed the line drawn between fashion and art and have managed to simultaneously maintain careers in both fields. The team has lived and worked in New York since 1995.

You can see the work of the famous photographic duo Inez van Lamsweerde and Vinoodh Matadin at Foam (Amsterdam)until the 15th of September. It is worth a visit!

Foam shows approximately 300 photographs spanning 25 years of the duo’s career. Art, fashion and portrait works all exist next to each other. By disregarding any chronological order the combinations of images are based on personal, formal, social, political and intuitive associations that show the way the artists have lived with the images for 25 years.
