Mimi Berlin Blogger Team at the Unseen Platform Photofair

Mimi Berlin Bloggerteam visited the annual Unseen Photofair in Amsterdam last weekend.

We saw many, many photographic works and met many friends. Like always this small photofair, held at the Westergasfabriek in Amsterdam (21/23-09-18) is always a joy to visit. Below some images we took of work that stood out for us. Enjoy! xoxo Mimi Berlin.

Theo Niekus

At the bookfair we met Theo Niekus, a Dutch street photographer who publishes (and makes) his own books (by hand). We were very impressed by his art-book ‘My Image Memory”: 1690 pages thick filled with all kinds of images, collected by Mr Niekus throughout many years. Theo Niekus publishes much more, a.o. the photography magazine ‘Report’. We suggest you visit his site and have a look. theoniekus.nl

Children’s Bicycles in Amsterdam

Children’s Bicycles in Amsterdam

In Amsterdam, just like in any other city, bicycles aren’t pretty. Bikes are used every day and they need to be kept outside because nobody has a shed, and only a few get to live on a ground floor. Children’s Bicycles are also kept outside, mostly locked with a thick, fat chain so they won’t get stolen.
