Pretty Much Everything

Yesterday I went to an exhibition of the photographer's duo Inez van Lamsweerde and Vinoodh Matadin, in the Foam Amsterdam. The amount of amazing photos was simply stunning; 30 years in the business led to more than 300 pictures that filled the walls of Foam. They were positioned in some kind of labyrinth that went on and on. Though I didn't understand all the pictures, the overall feeling was one of bright ideas and very diverse work. From little polaroids to enlarged campaign pictures for ChloƩ and Balmain, each photo is special. Inez van Lamsweerde and Vinoodh Matadin shook up the fashion (and art) world with their innovative use of photoshop, creating a different vibe than the simple, 'real' grunge streamlet that was going on in photography in the 90s. You can't really categorise their work. This is art and fashion, commercial and artistic, personal and for the public.
I tried to photograph these photos, but it was kind of hard because of the reflections. I hope you can appreciate their work anyway.
