The printed matter on our table will consist of photographic zines ranging from social documentary, portraiture, still life and cultural identity. The collective members have personal photographic projects that cover these themes.
Our current zines are about urban documentarty, portraiture, experimental dark room techniques and challenging social and cultural norms.
We been making zines for about 3 years. It started as a proofing tool for laying out series and selecting the layout of our exhibitions. It has become an idea sharing tool that has motivated and inspired people every time they pick up a zine we created. That has motivated all collective members to work harder on their photographic projects to inspire and connect to people in another level one zine at a time.
All the zines created by Ni Aquí, Ni allá are part of personal photographic projects by each artist. Each artist is passionate about an issue or a topic that gets researched and studied before working on it. Most of the Zine content is part of a current exhibition on display or a future exhibition.
Independent Publishing is important because it gives the people who are not being heard a powerful voice through their creations.
Its allows them to express themselves freely, talk about and issues, share ideas or information without having to be censored. Independent publishing for the most part is by the people for the people without that corporate sponsorship funded for a political agenda.
