My zines are photographic journals of places, people and things I’ve witnessed and encountered. My eyes are yours for the taking as I want to share what I see because there’s so much out there in this world and in every town, place, and country that we couldn’t possibly see it all.
One of My favorite things about zines in general is that you have the chance to bring importance to something . It can be you shining light on poetry, illustrations, self help, or photography. When I see someone recognize a place I photographed we get to connect in a genuine way even if we’re strangers.
Zines are no holds bar. No rules at all man, my first zines were awful and amazing because I learned and did them myself. The power of the press is such a strong thing and we shouldn’t shy away from using our ears, eyes, hands, and voices to connect and create. In a world such as ours, the freedom of press could face threats but it’s up to us to preserve the control we posses and use it to express ourselves at any means.
Get out there and do it, don’t ask what kind of paper we’ve used. Get yourself out there and feel some fibers and get to know your medium and what it is you want to create. I love and admire so many styles of zine making but I know what I can do. Remember that the essence of this all isn’t to make a ton of bucks but rather to show love and fuck around with things you like or even don’t like. Just do it.
