I love the concept of barter, trading stuff, zine for zine, or other art for zine. Some people have done trading like this, I even got some mushrooms from a subscriber at the Durham Farmers Market, which was really cool. If you can’t trade something, just send me a letter or a postcard giving someContinue reading “musings”
Like everything else these days, the printing costs for the zine have gone up, and will continue to go up it seems. Not going to get into details about it as I don’t need to hear people feeling guilty for getting it free in their mailbox. Eighteen of the thirty copies printed went out toContinue reading “distribution”
I posted this image to ello this morning. https://ello.co/nocontextzine I have been on ello, “the creators network”, since it’s beginning more than seven years ago. It was a wonderful free place to be, interacting with other photographers and artists. But as in all things, they had to figure out how to monetize it, and theContinue reading “ello”
Ralph Gibson, my favorite photographer, worked for both Dorothea Lange and Robert Franks, not too shabby.

Seven to the printer this morning. Will be putting them in the mail later this week. No in person delivery for this one, gas is crazy. Send me a mailing address. All spread images. Cheers all!
There are always photos that don’t make the final edit for the zine, the leftovers. I had three film shots, all shot on Kodak TriX 400, that were in serious consideration, but I just couldn’t figure out what to match them with on a facing page. Going to post them here and comment about whyContinue reading “leftovers”
Or should I have titled this, antisocial media, doesn’t matter. Made a post on my instagram this morning that I will only be posting zine updates there from now on, no regular photography. A part of me wishes I had never come back to IG, but then I see that I would have maybe neverContinue reading “social media”
Been sitting with these spreads/facing pages for a few days. It feels like I’m done with zine #7. Maybe next week sometime. Cheers!
I was going to do a post solely dedicated to my film experiment, but I decided that a quick summation would suffice. I will not be shooting much if any film going forward so it doesn’t really matter that much. There were four 400 speed films and the one I liked the best was theContinue reading “so it goes”
