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.
It's more than just beauty that makes someone beautiful
Sullivan has graduated from Syracuse University and studied at the International Center of Photography in New York. Her main inspiration, when it comes to art creation, is poetry and silent meditative walks around her hometown, New York. Her work is part of the permanent collection of the Museum of Fine Arts, Houston and is widely exhibited in both solo and group exhibitions across the world. Her first monograph, “Things we Remember” was published in 2021 by Skeleton Key Press.
Sullivan loves discovering hidden places of the metropolis where she has a chance to meet candidates for her mysterious and nostalgic portraits. When joining the International Center of Photography in New York, she connected with her art self by becoming obsessed with making portraits of family and close friends. This helped the photographer to express her vision more clearly and create more intimate portraits.
Being her second monograph “After Beauty” is inspired by a poem of an artist and a poet Walter Fields, which also begins the book. According to Sullivan, it’s more than just beauty that makes someone beautiful, it’s about personal experiences and stories that the person carries throughout her life.
