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.
The identity of a village.
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.
Appdikted @Mimi Berlin is trying to capture the graphic identity of Venice, Italy by collecting the images of doorbells. Doorbells in this maze of a city are embellished to the extreme in stone, bronze and copper as you can see below.
The Lobby of The Far East Hotel in Beijing has a simple and functional interior. One champagne colored leather couch with 4 matching chairs, that’s the only furniture to be found in this lobby. This furniture is humongous and placed against the wall, in a row, leaving enough space to fit 2 busloads of tourists in front of the reception desk. It’s all a bit run down because of old age but it’s a very comfortable place to wait, play, read, have a chat, spend the afternoon or even sleep. The marble floors are shiny and easy to keep clean, they are similar in style to the larger restaurants and shops in Beijing.
The lobby of The Far East Hotel Inspired us, at Mimi Berlin, whilst in search for a location to photograph our Mimi Beijing Fashion-Fest group portrait. Hotel lobby’s are always inspiring but we found this hotel lobby the most suitable for our project. Every time we visited the couch and chairs were occupied by at least one person doing something…..like walking through our camera lens.
