We’ve got some very promising news: our Kickstarter is almost fully funded. We’re that much closer to being able to deliver an evocative zine showcasing the work and thought processes of some of the best modern analog photographers in the world. Nothing would make us (and many of you) happier. Our goal asks for $3,000–which is honestly nothing to get a 100 page zine off the ground.
Our goal with the zine is to find a way to not only inspire photographers to go out there and shoot, but to also show the world exactly what’s possible with modern day photographers and the films they use. Our conversations with each photographer won’t focus heavily on gear (but it will a bit), but instead more on their actual creative thought process. Considering the fact that we interview sooooooo many photographers out there, who better to do this than us?
This magazine (or zine, rather) will be completely ad free and will be a limited edition printed on high quality paper. If we reach our goals, we’re going to get it out to everyone before the end of the year.
So why focus on just analog photographers? Because we all know exactly what’s possible with digital. With analog photography, there is a heavy emphasis on making sure that everything gets done perfectly right in the camera. We all know that a scanned photo is just a high dynamic range digital image of a film photo; and that print making is a whole different process altogether.
Purchasing a zine only costs $25, and if you pledge $35 then we’ll throw in a one year basic subscription to La Noir Image, our premium photography website.
If this launches successfully, we may consider doing these more frequently. Just imagine it: a special magazine put out by the Phoblographer featuring content you seriously won’t be able to get anywhere else.
Please head on over to our Kickstarter and check it out.
