The Shangri Las

The Shangri Las

The Shangri Las are a girl pop group from the 1960s, They were a bit different from other Girl Groups back then. (groups which name starts with The, similar dressed trio’s with two background singers etc.) because they came from Queens, New York which also was part of the ‘though’ image they had. The Shangri Las recorded songs about alienation, loneliness, abandonment and death, well all the stuff a teenager finds interesting…. Our personal favorites are ‘The leader of the pack’, ‘Sophisticated Boom Boom’ and ‘I Can Never Go Home Anymore’. We could only find one of our favorite songs on video, but never mind that; the girls are a feast to the eye in action, with their tight boots, big hair and shrilly voices. Have a nive day! xoxo Mimi



Yes! the ‘background’ singers are twins! Continue reading

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.

The best hairdo’s!

Photographer  Stefan Ruiz photographed these kids in Mexico. The series is called “Colombians”. We think, probably just as mr Ruiz, that these street style haircuts are wonderful!
