images may be added again at some stage - too many images "stolen" and used uncredited without any notice. Will rethink the whole project - password protected access may be an option, paid subscribing another or taking it completly offline also thinkable. But still undecided...

"The lifestyle documented in Girls Blue is determindely upbeat, focusing on the pop-consumerism of the young urbanite of relative affluence - a lifestyle dominated by clothes, shopping malls, fast-food outlets, and young men, to which Hiromix, like her subjects, clearly subscribes. ... But Hiromix, whose photographic voice is an unusually empathetic one, is unrepentant. Her comment on the book's jacket shows all the arrogance of youth: 'Photography is the place where I can express all ... I feel and think in my everyday life. It would not be understood by grown-ups or kids – only we can see what it is.'" (Garry Badger in "The Photobook: A History volume I, Hiromix)
