Reporting live from “everywhere,” photographer Adam Katz Sinding (formerly known as Le 21ème) travels around the globe to document the fashion zeitgeist. An Instagram hit, @aks’s lens captures fashion weeks, runway idols, the next big trends, tastemakers, and—in particular—street style.
His first teNeues book This is Not a F*cking Street Style Book featured a curated collection of some of his best images, taken both backstage at the shows and of the style-setters on the streets. In this new publication, Sinding widens his scope and explores culture and landmarks with the same sophisticated eye he uses to photograph fashion. In the last year, he has traveled through over 35 countries across the globe, snapping a breathtaking number of beautiful photos that capture the essence of a place as only he would recognize it. Along with his pictures, the book includes contributions from Errolson Hugh and offers a unique insight into the peculiar mind of Adam Katz Sinding himself, his obsessive exercising habits, and the cultural phenomenon he has become over the years.

At the heart of MENDO is the love of pure design. Before establishing the inspirational concept store and go-to flagship bookstore for style-conscious bibliophiles in Amsterdam in 2002, founders Roy Rietstap and Joost Albronda were accomplished graphic designers with an eye for innovation and entrepreneurship. Thus, a brilliant retail concept was created in the form of the MENDO of today. The collaboration of teNeues x MENDO is a synergy on many levels—a premier international publisher of illustrated books on culture combining with trendsetting designers with a great love for beautiful, aesthetically-minded books—housed in a one-of-a-kind global bookstore. If you look closely, you will see that the simple, elegant black walls are actually made of precise stacks of books—an idea that is typical Amsterdam!
