Inez van Lamsweerde & Vinoodh Matadin

While I was in Amsterdam in late August, I made sure to visit the FOAM Gallery. Its main Gallery staged a retrospective "Pretty Much Everything – photographs 1985-2010" featuring over 300 photographs spanning Inez van Lamsweerde & Vinoodh Matadin’s 25 year career together.
Inez & Vinoodh are a Dutch couple who have been taking outstanding photographs since 1985.
Honestly Ive known just a little about them before going to FOAM, but little did i know that almost all the ad campaigns, editorials or magazine covers that have left an impact on me were by this duo.
From YSL, Cavalli, Versace, Herve Leger, Balenciaga, Isabel Marant, Gucci & Moschino to name a few to Bjork's new album cover, their bold & innovative approach is consistent. They have also created ground-breaking editorial shots for American, French, and Italian Vogue, V and many portraits forThe New York Times Magazine.
Check out some of my favorite works of theirs....
also check out the video of the duo talking about their work.
