i recently learned that the Dutch couple and photographers Inez van Lamsweerde & Vinoodh Matadin were responsible for some of my most favorite fashion ad campaigns as well as other beautiful portraits seen in publications across the world. Featured in such magazines as V, Nylon, Paper, New York, Vogue and Self, Inez and Vinoodh create moving imagery from a lens, so much so that a retrospective of their 25 years of shooting for Chanel, Gucci, Balenciaga, the New York Times and W (to name a few) is at the FOAM Fotografiemuseum, Amsterdam. from June 25–September 15, 2010. Called “Pretty Much Everything: Photographs 1985–2010” the collection of over 300 prints will be displayed out of cronological order, “the 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” I don’t think i will be able to make it to Amsterdam in time, but i do think their 2 volume anthology will be on my birthday list!
