Pretty Much Everything – photographs 1985-2010
25 June – 15 September 2010 – Amsterdam

Foam_Fotografiemuseum Amsterdam proudly presents a survey of the work of the world famous photographic duo of Inez van Lamsweerde and Vinoodh Matadin. 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.

Foam will show 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.
