Words

Most everyone at Inventory has recently been gorging themselves on Jima's Loiter series of zines. Printed on an impressively regular basis, in limited numbers, the books offer a look at the citizens of the world and their environs, through the eye of the New York-based photographer. A perpetual street dweller, Jima captures the unexpected and interesting, and while many know of him via magazine pages or his regular collaborations with Engineered Garments, it is these candid fieldworks that are the cornerstone of his photographic output. Recent releases include a series shot during Fashion Week here in New York, a trip to Tokyo, and time spent in Germany and Portugal. These books are not only affordable, but also a must-have, and are currently available at Nepenthes New York while supplies last.

—01. We all scream for ice cream.

Words

Shot on the streets of New York City in classic Jima style, this little EG Workaday feature popped up on the Nepenthes website last week. It probably wasn't intentional, but Down by Law immediately sprang to mind. Click on the link below to see what I mean.

Words

New York-based photographer Jima has been contributing to the Column section on the Nepenthes website since mid-May. Although I'm not able to read his handwritten entries, I've been enjoying the candid imagery that accompanies them, and look forward to seeing more as his Manhattan diary develops.

Weekend Veiwing: A Study of Legs

01

Video

—01. A film in 11 parts.

Words

An old one but a good one, and if you haven't seen it well worth just over 20 minutes of your time. Shot for a month during lunch breaks between winter and spring 2009, the imagery was captured on the streets of Midtown Manhattan by Atsushi Nishijima (aka Jima). The resulting film by Jim Helton, with sound by Dan Flosdorf, was then screened as part of a charity event for Japan on May 24th, 2011.
