Jermain’s favorite books
Meet Jermain Cikic
Jermain Cikic might seem a bit mysterious, but still waters run deep. After being a very promising young soccer player, Jermain decided to focus on his love for photography. At MENDO, we also kind of have a thing with photography so Jermain was a great addition to the team. When Jermain isn’t scouring the streets for that one great image, he’s managing the orders in our stockroom. Making sure you receive your books when you desire them.
‘This book bundles all that the brand for stands. From their own productions, to what inspired them. Furthermore, Jamie Hawkesworth is the photographer that shoots all of Loewe’s campaigns. His signature touch is clearly visible in this book.’
Joel Meyerowitz: Where I Find Myself
From Joel Meyerowitz’s most recent picture all the way back to the first photograph he ever took. The book covers all of Joel Meyerowitz’s great projects: his work inspired by the artist Morandi, his work on trees, his exclusive coverage of Ground Zero, his trips in the footsteps of Robert Frank across the US, his experiments comparing color and black and white pictures, and of course his iconic street photography work.
Vivianne Sassen: Roxane II
‘This book starts off with a beautifully written introduction in which the spirit of the brand is described. It bundles everything related to Roxane, Viviane Sassen’s muse. It’s an experimental project, in which shadow and abstraction are intertwined with the power of paint art. It’s very conceptual, yet recognizable for Sassen’s work.’
Streets of Paris
As one of Europe’s most vibrant cities for art, fashion, and culture, it’s challenging to capture the multifaceted city of Paris from the perspective of one lens. Therefore, Streets of Paris bundles the work of 37 photographers, both Paris natives and visitors alike, who roam the thousands of Parisian “rues” to capture multiple points of view.
‘This book comprises the success stories behind various collaborations. From the collabs between Riccardo Tisco and Mariacarla Boscono, to JW Anderson and Benjamin Bruno. The book doesn’t only focus on the result of the partnerships, but also offers a unique inside peek in the productions.’
Vivian Maier: The Color Work
Vivian Maier: The Color Work is the first definitive monograph of color photographs by American photographer Vivian Maier. With a preface by master of color photography Joel Meyerowitz and text by photography authority Colin Westerbeck, the book features approximately 150 full color images, almost all of which have never been published.
