Mimi Loves Happy Customers

It’s always wonderful if somebody loves your work enough to purchase it. That happend with our nude selfportrait the other day. We made an artwork for the exhibition Reflection in Time” initiated by Nannet van der Kleijn at Bradwolff projects in Amsterdam. @maritsatelier framed the canvas we created and it looks goog, in our opinion.

Gustav Brostrom’s Beauty Multi Masks on Instagram

Gustav Brostrom’s Beauty Multi Masks on Instagram

The instagram feed of Gustav Brostrom from Stockholm, Sweden, is filled with selfies made of his face covered in different beauty masks at the same time. Gustav mixes facial masks, patches, foams and what have you not, to create lovely images of himself. (yes we know they are called selfies)

Multimasking was the newest rage in 2015, a beauty trend we, at Mimi Berlin, completely missed out on. Basically it’s targeted skincare. By putting on multiple facial masks, or layer them simultaneously on the skin, you can treat different skin concerns at one time. Gustav Brostrom takes multimasking to the next level. Fun!

History: Self Portrait in the Mirror

History: Self Portrait in the MirrorHistory: Self Portrait in the Mirror

We saw this story on Petapixel.com and wanted to share it with y’all this fine morning.

“Staring into a mirror and taking a self-portrait with a camera is nothing new. People have been trying to find ways to take their photographs since the 19th century. As humans, we take an interest in ourselves – a curiosity with a dash of self-obsession. A photograph can acknowledge our existence and allow us to view ourselves from the standpoint of others around us. Here are a collection of mirror self-portraits from years passed.” (read the full story at http://petapixel.com/2015/06/02/mirror-self-portraits-from-the-early-days-of-photography/)
