Inez & Vinoodh In the Hot Seat

The Photographers Take Two To Chat With NOWNESS

Inez van Lamsweerde and Vinoodh Matadin are among the busiest photographers in the business, but even by the duo’s standards the run up to Pretty Much Everything, their gargantuan retrospective at Amsterdam’s Foam_Fotografiemuseum, has been manic. Luckily, we managed to grab a few precious moments with them during the installation and pose a few quickfire questions, the fruits of which we share below.

The exhibition at Foam celebrates 25 years of your work—where do you see yourselves 25 years from now?

We will hopefully have launched five fragrances based on our images and directed a few exciting movies. Or we could be doing yoga, full time, on a mountain in India.

Do you let your subjects view what you're doing when you're shooting them?

Yes, it's always a collaboration.

Our son Charles.
