Teen Spirit Island by Joscha Steffens
From the Series: Teen Spirit Island, each 60 x 80 cm, C-Print, 2015
As you can see these series (2 out of 6) are portraits of gamers, they are very dark ones (more so in real life) The boys are made barely visible by photographer joschasteffens.de, resident Artist at the Rijksakademie in Amsterdam (2016), but you can still see that they are true boys; playing playing playing. (We know it’s called gaming but we think playing is a word that is more suitable for boys, in general.) If they were men they could be pilots of some kind, or any other proffession where you sit behind a screen with devices stuck to your face…..We, at Mimi Berlin, love boys.
