Two artists, one vision

The enigmatic and genre-defying work of Inez van Lamsweerde and Vinoodh Matadin

Art Edition limited to 100 signed and numbered copies, each with the two pigment prints by Inez van Lamsweerde and Vinoodh Matadin.

“It is typical of the photographic art of van Lamsweerde and Matadin that they urge their image making to de-stabilise the pristine surfaces expected of consumer culture; to this end they make use, in turn, of the Gothic, inscrutability, androgyny, comedy, eroticism, surrealism, fantasy, montage, cinema, replication, image manipulation, Pop art, fetishism and art historical nuance.”
—Michael Bracewell, from the introduction

Inez van Lamsweerde and Vinoodh Matadin’s work has graced the walls and pages of some of the world’s finest galleries and fashion magazines, and if it is surprising that their photographs easily float between these worlds, it is by virtue of their ease in creating imagery that seeks homes in both culturally elite and mainstream outlets. For some of their photographs, such as their portrait of Björk or campaign for Givenchy, van Lamsweerde and Matadin have worked in collaboration with the art directors M/M (Paris), who have also designed this sumptuous two-volume retrospective set that looks back at “pretty much everything” that the photographers have been working on for over two decades and has brought them to the forefront in the fields of both art and fashion.

Also included:
  • Two-volume retrospective with 666 photographs of “pretty much everything” that the photographers have been working on for over two decades
  • Additional reader with interviews and texts about the photographic œuvre of Inez van Lamsweerde and Vinoodh Matadin
  • Entire set designed by the artists’ longtime collaborators M/M (Paris) and includes original silkscreened poster, origami-folded over the top corner of the slipcase
  • The prints are enclosed in a bespoke portfolio with original M/M (Paris) graphic and black ribbon ties.

Also available in another Art Edition (No. 1-100) with alternative prints.

Their portfolio includes art direction and collaborations with Björk, Balenciaga, and Inez van Lamsweerde & Vinoodh Matadin, as well as with magazines including Vogue Paris, Interview, and Purple Fashion.
