“SMIB Calling” is a production and series of photographs by Tirino Yspol, a young creative mind who captures the lifestyle of a distinctive group of teenagers in the Southeastern pat of Amsterdam throughout creative directing.
SMIB Calling was primarily shot in the Bijlmer section. With this series Yspol tries to capture the beauty of rebellious style of the teenagers, which is completely different from the general style of the people from Southeast Amsterdam. It's noticeable in the work that these guys think out of the box and find inspiration outside of their normal environment, where Punk and Hip-Hop played a big part of the forming of their style.
It originates from bad situations at home where there was no solid foundation for their creativity because they were only stimulated to finish school and acquire a job. They found a way to utilize their creative energy trough music, photography and clothing.
