Carmen freudenthal & Elle Verhagen have been working as a team since 1987
Their still lasting cooperation started of with a first publication in I-D magazine in 1989. In their work they are always in search for ways to expand the definition of fashion photography, crossing lines between fashion and art, looking for cultural relevancy. The images are, over the years, diverse in discipline and form, but always show a sense of disturbance and a multilayered story. Stretching the confines of photography, they have merged photographs into 3D installations, projected video onto photographs and printed photographs onto draped silk.
Their work has been published in Dazed & Confused, Jalouse, Flash Art International and numerous other photography - and design books.
Works are listed in the collections of the Groninger Museum and Centraal Museum Utrecht.
