LOS ANGELES  •  Gagosian Gallery  •  Ongoing

Corrupting photography's "decisive moment", cult photographers Inez Van Lamsweerde and Vinoodh Matadin have imposed their aesthetic intention upon reality for the last twenty-five years. The Dutch duo draw upon various imaginaries from the Gothic to Pop art via Surrealism. Using techniques both cutting edge and arcane, Inez & Vinoodh have treated the nude, portraiture, fashion, and popular culture as well as experimental montage and assemblage.

Inez & Vinoodh were born in 1963 and 1961, respectively, in Amsterdam, The Netherlands. They met while studying art and photography. Since beginning to work together in the late 1980s, they have created images for many leading international brands in luxury and fashion, as well as regular editorial features for magazines such as i-D, Interview, Purple, Pop, Vanity Fair, Vogue USA, Vogue China, Paris Vogue, Vogue Hommes International, Vogue Italia, Another Magazine, Gentlewoman, Visionaire, V, V Man, and W.

Pretty Much Everything, the retrospective project that has absorbed Inez & Vinoodh for the last nine years, is the most comprehensive record of their work to date. A limited-edition book in three volumes, designed by M/M Paris with essays by Glenn O'Brien, Michael Bracewell, Bruce Sterling, and others, was published recently by Taschen Books.
