1. What kind of zines do you make?

Photozines.


2. What do you like about making zines?

I like that fact that I get to see my photographs in a different light. It’s off the computer screen and in your hands.

3. What are your zines about?

My zines are about the daily mundane observations I make through my photographs.

4. How did you get started making zines?

Two years ago I got fed up with being turned down for every “Open Calls to Submit” that I submitted to. Decided I should just make my own and haven’t stopped since.

5. Where do you look for your inspiration?

Perfect bound hardcover photo-books.

6. What advice would you give a new zinester?

Just keep creating zines and ask for help whenever you need it.


7. What’s the biggest challenge you’ve had making zines?

Spending seven months editing a layout and changing my mind once I think it’s done. Just doesn’t feel right yet.
