My zines focus around photography and especially one that focuses on my father's journey around the world. My dad passed away a few years ago so I made pins of his photo and have been giving them out to people who are traveling.

What are your current zines about?

Most of my zines are centered around photography but there is one I'm primary focused on, which is my dad's project. My dad passed away a few years ago and I wanted to do something in his memory. He like most people dremt of traveling and seeing the world so I decided to do this for him. In doing so, I made buttons of him and gave them away to people who traveling, wherever the person has traveled to, she or he would take a photo with my dad's button. Since then I have also included a digital photo.
