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.

The three men pictured below were some the tallest men on earth, in the beginning of the 20th century. Ralph ‘Tex’ Madsen or the ‘Tall Cowboy’ was photographed in 1919 on the steps of the Capitol in the US of A. The German soldier, photographed and captivated at Calais in 1944 is believed to be Jakob Nacken. After WWII he returned to New York, where his job was being the largest Santa Claus in the world. Gogea Mitu a.k.a. ‘Goliath of Romania’ was a boxer from, yes; Romania, photograped here in 1935 together with an ‘opponent’. They all most likely suffered from gigantism don’t you think?
How lovely and strange are these images?!
That’s it for today: Have a one! xoxo Mimi

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.

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
Photographer Tetsuro Sato made a series of black and white photographs named: Hengao, which means Funny Face in Japanese. A simple concept, inspired by Purlkura

“In Japan, purikura (プリクラ) refers to a photo sticker booth or the product of such a photo booth. The name is a shortened form of the registered trademark Purinto Kurabu (プリント倶楽部). The term derives from the English print club.” (knowledge via wikipedia)
The first Purikura machine was called Print Club machine, made by Atlus in 1995.
