Made by MENDOAbout the books
Who will recognize a great book better than a bookstore? A bookstore run by graphic designers. Here’s why: at MENDO we get market feedback seven days a week, we are blessed to be surrounded by a bunch of talented, inspiring people – photographers, writers and publishers – and after being a bookstore for more than 15 years, we can easily say we know what book aficionados are looking for. Don’t you agree that initiating, creating and realizing jaw-dropping books now, only comes natural?
A MENDO publication is a well-designed book with visually stunning creative content, browsed by people to be amazed and inspired. The subject-matter is one of our pre-defined curated categories, fashion, photography, interior, sport, lifestyle, food and traveling. In general, a MENDO book is a piece of furniture in itself.
From the homeless to the queen, no one escapes Corbino's gaze
Dutch photographer, filmmaker and writer Corbino aims to move people with his work. His personal and striking portraits are carved in crispy black and white, interspersed with some remarkable colour photographs. From the homeless to the queen, from singer Hazes to conductor Van Zweden, they all pass his review; no one escapes Corbino’s gaze. Many of the portraits by this self-taught photographer have become icons of Dutch portrait photography.
The series of references to the Old and New Testament do justice to the title. From pride as the greatest threat to infinite empathy for others, all these are themes that are interwoven in Corbino’s life and work.
