Kiki: The Sweetest Shop
Kiki
The Sweetest Shop
I guess not many of you know where, what, or why Koenji is. It's a district of Tokyo, located right in the middle of Suginami, which you can find on the Western end of Shinjuku. Around 1980, quite a lot of apartment buildings were set up there, which caused the number of stores, bars, and cafes to skyrocket. Today you can find cute little stores in Suginami, as an alternative to the hustle and bustle of Shibuya, Akihabara, or Shimokitazawa. If you want a shopping experience with a difference, I recommend Kiki, a pink, cute vinta…

Curtis Blair: Nordic Girls
Curtis Blair
Nordic Girls
Swedish people are among the most beautiful and desirable beings in the world. This fact is known in both hemispheres. The boys are muscular, grinning, blond-headed and blessed with Emil Svensson's charm, the girls are tall, slender, with golden hair and a face that makes angels look down in disgust. Cliché and reality are inseparably united in the desire for perfection. British artist Curtis Blair seems to love not only analog photography, but also, like me, girls from the far north. Sweden, Norway, Iceland, Finland, a bit of E…

Bijou Karman: It's a Woman's Woman's Woman's World
Bijou Karman
It's a Woman's Woman's Woman's World
I'm a big fan of artists who use femininity in all its beauty and power as the basis of their work. After all, femininity is full of colorful facets, so that it's never lame to devote yourself to it in various ways, both as someone who creates art and someone who wants to look at it and also understand it in its entirety. Bijou Karman from Los Angeles creates beautiful illustrations of young, strong, and pretty girls. Even famous personalities and brands like Rihanna, Converse, Elle, and Harper's Bazaar have already taken notice…

Alexandros Mastroyiannis: Beautiful British Bohemians
Alexandros Mastroyiannis
Beautiful British Bohemians
My name is Alexandros Mastroyiannis. I grew up in Athens in Greece. But when I got a little older, we moved to Swansea in Wales. Swansea is truly a terrible place, I hated it there. But the city provided me with enough funny anecdotes to last a lifetime. Then just recently my path took me to Exeter in England, which is immediately much prettier to look at than Swansea, even if it is a rather small city. I love Athens, it's a wonderful metropolis. I'm nineteen years old now and I hope I never get older. I only started taking pho…

Chih Hsien Chen: Cultural Revolution
Chih Hsien Chen
Cultural Revolution
The sad truth is that I know absolutely nothing about Taiwan. Of its history, of its hardships, of its hopes. Almost 25 million people live on the island in East Asia, whose republic was proclaimed on January 1, 1912, after the Xinhai Revolution on the Chinese mainland. Chih Hsien Chen is one of these roughly 25 million people. Chih Hsien Chen is studying at the Tainan University of Technology, also known as Tainan Tech, in the south of the country. He has dedicated his life to photography, through which he immortalizes the yout…

Yuta Toyoi: 8-Bit Tokyo
Yuta Toyoi
8-Bit Tokyo
Tokyo is at its most beautiful especially on a sunny, cloudless spring day. But often the true wonders of Japan's megametropolis unfold only when it rains, snows, or complete darkness descends upon the land and all manner of garish neon lights adorn the large and small streets of Shibuya, Akihabara, and Harajuku. Japanese illustrator and pixel art artist Yuta Toyoi appreciates this special beauty and tells the small and big stories of the people living in Tokyo in his animated 8-bit works. A bumpy ride on the crowded subway, the…

Super Potato
Where the Old Games Are
Welcome to Super Potato, also known as the pure video game paradise of the Far East. The store, which stretches over several floors in Akihabara, is crammed with everything that makes retro gamers' hearts beat faster: Super Nintendo role-playing games, Dreamcast consoles, The Legend of Zelda walkthrough books, Final Fantasy soundtracks, most of it between five and twenty dollars - except, of course, the very special gems, such as limited-edition figures or rare versions. At the very top, you'll still find a well-attended arcade…

Valerie Phillips: Another Girl Another Planet
Valerie Phillips
Another Girl Another Planet
Although I'm a girl myself, I can't get enough of peeking into other and somehow strangely mysterious lives of my own kind. Especially into those of the very creative and alternative and special ones, the ones who, by their very existence, make this planet a better one. Other girls inspire me more than anything else in this world. Valerie Phillips is not only a very talanted photographer but also someone who pretty much only shoots what I like to look at. Primarily girls being girls. They laugh and they dance and they're not ash…

Bravo Ko: Taiwan's Young Rebels
Bravo Ko
Taiwan's Young Rebels
After I came across the magnificent photographs of Chih Hsien Chen from Taiwan some time ago, I now became aware of Bravo Ko, who not only lives in the same country and city but also acts in the same circle of friends. Having such great companions who do nothing else but immortalize their generation with powerful images is truly amazing. Whenever I publish such photos on AMY&PINK, and I have been doing so for years, critics always start complaining that it's not real art at all. It's just some skillless hipster making pictur…

Alexandra Tunnard: We Are Super Humans
Alexandra Tunnard
We Are Super Humans
British artist Alexandra Tunnard just turned 18 years old. And even in this early period of life, you can see quite clearly who is blessed with talent - and who isn't. While older and much worse artists try hard to cover up their non-existing talent with illegally acquired Photoshop filters and overpriced workshops, Alexandra can show off her skills with ease and without using any of that crap. Alexandra lives in Torbay, an idyllic harbor city in south west England. Because of the mild climate, palm trees are a common sight alon…
