Internet find – How to find your way

This is a cool zine to download and print out yourself – I love it when people do this.

It’s from Gregoire Huret

find him here – twitter instagram facebook

This is a cool looking zine as well. I like street photography and I think Paris may be my favourite city. These are good portraits and a great idea to mark their positions on a map included in the zine.

This seems to be a new blog started by Miguel A. S. Correia of Ultra Violenta (great zine you should check out here) with posts about various museums and galleries he has visited. There’s only a few posts up, but they are fun. Particularly nice to see so many photos. I was led here when Miguel posted in the zinelove chat group we run on facebook.

This is the article and it’s about visiting the Fanzineteca run by Ogata Tetsuo, another member of the group. That’s a beautiful looking place and is definitely somewhere I’d love to see!

I don’t what she does with light, but there’s something so appealing about how she handles it and what it does to the colours in her photos.

I also admire how she manages texture and visual saturation within her photos, there’s always shapes and an instant appeal to appreciate, but there’s always more to dive deep into in the image.

It’s his recent work on this account that I enjoy the most, more experimental and poetic and manufactured. It feels ethereal and enigmatic, like photographic poetry
