M/M Paris

M/M (Paris) is an art and design partnership consisting of Mathias Augustyniak (born 1967, Cavaillon) and Michael Amzalag (born 1968,Paris), established in Paris in 1992. Amzalag and Augustyniak met as students at the Ecole Nationale Superieure des Arts Decoratifs in Paris 1988. Since neither of them were interested in interning or working for an agency or a company, they decided to work together, and founded M/M (Paris) in 1992. In 1995 they met photographers

Inez van Lamsweerde & Vinoodh Matadin, and began a long collaboration starting with a campaign for Thierry Mugler in 1995. Many of the posters M/M designed with van Lamsweerde & Matadin are manipulated

or drawn-upon photographs (see e.g. their poster series Punctuation from 2010, or the poster Balenciaga (Delfine)). The purpose of this method is to accentuate hidden aspects of the photograph.
