Dutch collaborators Carmen Freudenthal (photographer) and Elle Verhagen (stylist) have been working together since 1989. Their collaboration with fashion designers, performers and other artists results in a wide variety of work, which is always recognizable for its humorous approach of daily life and its use (and abuse) of contemporary imagery and (photo)graphic techniques.

Freudenthal/Verhagen are a Dutch photography duo based in Amsterdam. They met right after graduating from the Gerrit Rietveld Academy were Carmen studied photography and Elle fashion design. There was a immediate recognition of a mutual taste in image making and what fashion imagery should look like. Their still lasting cooperation started of with a 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 multi layered story. This has resulted in a body of work with an unique personal handwriting and markable face.

Carmen and Elle have created all look-books and art-directing several shows for Bernhard Willhelm from 2001 till 2007,. For recent exhibitions they integrated photography with 3-dimensional installations, projected video on photographs and printed photographs on draped silk sheets.
F/V combine their art work with commissioned projects for fashion-, design- and commercial clients.
Their work has been published in I-d magazine, Dazed & Confused, Jalouse, Flash Art International and in numerous photo- and design books.
They participated in exhibitions in Europe, the United States and Japan, including solo exhibitions in Milan and the Netherlands.
