Boris Leist: World of Knights and Zombies
Boris Leist
World of Knights and Zombies
I'm with you. I really am. This world we live in right now is boring. Extremely boring. You have your job, your wife, your kids, your video games, your fast food. But deep in your heart, you want to have an adventure. Fight for something you really love. Discover new galaxies, new universes. Find gold, find monsters, find honor. I'm with you. I really am. Photographer Boris Leist studied social science and German studies and now follows people who are part of the global live role-playing movement. What is this now, you may be as…

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…

Alexandros Mastroyiannis: Beautiful British Bohemians

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…

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…

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…

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…

Art makes me angry: Dicks, Memes and Justin Bieber
Art makes me angry
Dicks, Memes and Justin Bieber
I stand in front of a wall. It's huge and bright and largely empty. Only two framed pictures hang on it. I try to look at them as concentrated as I can, but that doesn't change the fact that only a couple of stick figures were drawn on the white canvases. They stare back at me. A sun in the corner, some grass on the ground. Everything's black and white. The one next to it doesn't offer a much more adventurous experience either. The gallery owner sits bored on a wooden chair, typing on her iPad. Connoisseurs, patrons, and buyers…

Andrew Miksys: Disco in Lithuania

Disco in Lithuania
The Second World War deprived many families of their livelihood. Among them were the grandparents of photographer Andrew Miksys, who fled Lithuania for the USA. Andrew didn't have much to do with his European roots, but that was about to change when he was given a box of old negatives from that lost time by his grandpa. Andrew flew to Lithuania, his homeland he had never known. He ended up at a small disco in an even smaller village. "It's weird showing up alone in this strange place without even knowing anyone," he te…
