Inez and Vinoodh Say Shooting Underage Models is ‘Unethical’

Photography duo Inez van Lamsweerde & Vinoodh Matadin have just unveiled their new limited edition book, 'Pretty Much Everything' which documents their 25-year relationship and collaboration, and which costs $700 for 342 pages filled with their favourite photos. Speaking to about the book and reflecting on their long career together, the duo spoke on shooting underage models. Inez commented:
"They start at 14 and everyone says to them, “Wow, you’re incredible. You’re so skinny. You look like a boy.” And once that girl is 18 and her body is finished growing, all of a sudden it was like, “Oh, she’s fat.” The poor girl. She’s just growing. We felt it was unethical to support that. You get judged anyway and it’s not easy. You have to really know who you are first. And at such a tender age—between 14 and 18—you’re figuring out who you are."

Inez also reveals that there is an issue of Vogue Paris that will be dedicated to Daria Werbowy, and they'll be taking part:
"I could shoot [Christy Turlington] every day of my life. The same goes for Daria. We’re shooting a whole issue on her for French Vogue for February."
