IJmagazine is a printed ‘glossy’ magazine about Amsterdam-Noord, well, it’s actually printed on beautiful matte paper. By ‘glossy’ we mean that the content is very high-end in means of lay-out, photography and stories. Inside this second issue you will find a photo-series by Mimi Berlin and JW Kaldenbach. We made an alternative shopping-editorial on things ‘made’ and ‘collected’ in Amsterdam-Noord.
Furthermore the magazine shows hot-spots, interior styling, architectural pieces in Noord, and most important: newly build homes, as in buildings for sale in the Northern part of Amsterdam, across from the city-center near the IJ waterfront.
The IJmagazine is for sale at the so-called better bookstores, such as for example Athenaeum and Scheltema in Amsterdam. Or subscribe to the ‘aan t IJ‘ newsletter and get it for free.
30 images of dead Italian people. These aren’t anonymous people, we, at Mimi Berlin, made them that way. We only photographed their faces, no names, flowers, candles or any other personal items that show who they were and how they are still loved, by living Italian people from Portofino.
If you would like to know more about these men and women we suggest you visit the fisherman’s village of Portofino, with only around 500 inhabitants, to see the identity of this village for yourself at the tiny white cemetery at the Church of San Giorgio.
Once in a while your eyesight needs to be checked. Visits to the optician become even more necessary when you grow older. It seems like the eyes grow tired of looking at things up-close, and they refuse to focus. We know that age-related eye changes are normal, so we don’t mind visititing the local eyeware store. Au contraire, everytime we visit it’s rather fun. Proof of that below, a portrait of Mimi Berlin by Mimi Berlin, both behind the ‘lenses’.
That’s all we wanted to share with y’all today. Have a nice one! xoxo Mimi Berlin
