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.
180 years of photography in the Netherlands and its colonies
This book features photography of kinds, from 19th-century daguerreotypes to contemporary works by Rineke Dijkstra, Dustin Thierry, Bertien van Manen, Dana Lixenberg, Lee To Sang, and more.
Compiled for the Nederlands Fotomuseum by a committee of five experts, the selected images display the richness of the work of photographers who explore the borders of the medium and are unafraid to challenge them.
Encompassing numerous narratives, the photographs also show how radically the technology and sociocultural function of photography has evolved.
