Based in Frankfurt, the duo’s images are modern, sexy, fun and colourful. Their pictures always look familiar. The portrayed like good friends. Probably also because a photo session with Lottermann and Fuentes is more like a meeting with old acquaintances.
Nada Lottermann and Vanessa Fuentes’ strong childhood bond set the foundations for their successful, joint career in photography. Their distinct photographic style was shown in the Galerie für Moderne Fotografie and the Palais de Tokyo in Paris. In their exhibition, entitled “PING PONG”, they present playful pictures that were often spontaneously, yet precisely, executed.
For various clients as Dr. Hauschka, Item M6, Sisley, Closed, Vogue, Cartier, Lacoste, Lala Berlin, & other Stories, Wolford and more they work, live and laugh together. And with Magazins like FAZ Magazin, Stern, GQ, Monopol, Die Zeit they are bonded with ongoing portraits and Stories.
"We shoot with an analog flash or use daylight to have this intimate feeling of being part of the vibe. We are flexible to change the angle of the shoot as we shoot with 2 cameras and 4 eyes and we don’t have big light construction. The pictures always look familiar. The portrayed like good friends. Probably also because a photo session with Lottermann and Fuentes is more like a meeting with old acquaintances. Somehow, however, the images emerge. Each time differently and in a different way. But always with the same familiarity."
