Photography magazines, at least the mainstream, on store shelve types, are more or less a thing of the past (there are still a few who persist). But some smaller publishers are using capabilities of today’s technology to market niche magazines to specific demographics. One new such project is She Shoots Film, and their first issue is almost ready for market.
As you might have guessed from the name, She Shoots Film is a magazine featuring the work of female photographers who are working with film. Their first issue, Self Portrait, features the work of 29 female photographers, including interviews with Sarah Lazure, Marisa Redburn, Silke Seybold, and Lisa Toboz.
She Shoots Film describes this first issue as “an exploration of film and analog process based female self-portraiture and artist words on the printed page.” Their initial IndieGoGo campaign was backed 123% earning them over $7,500 compared to their $6,000 goal.
According to their timeline, they are currently in the midst of printing the issue. If all continues according to plan, the first physical magazines should start hitting the post in march. This magazine is just more proof of analog photography’s return, and the growing interest not only in shooting it, but also consuming it for content.
