For over two decades, the meticulous and audacious imagery created by Inez Van Lamsweerde and Vindoodh Matadin has challenged the field of fashion photography. Working together since 1986, the Dutch partnership rose to fame in the early 1990s. Experimenting with the latest digital technologies, their early work captured the imagination of art critics. Collaborating with Belgian designer Veronique LeRoy, they formulated a vocabulary of attenuated predatory figures in hyper-real environments. Flying in the face of the prevailing “grunge” movement and signaling the end of that genre of fashion photography.
They are regular contributors to Vogue Paris, Purple Magazine, W Magazine and V Magazine among others and have created iconic advertising campaigns for leading fashion and fragrance brands including: Yves Saint Laurent, Christian Dior, Gucci, Chloe, Givenchy, Balenciaga, Chanel, Roberto Cavalli and Viktor & Rolf Parfum.
Their work is exhibited internationally and held in public and private collections across the world.
