With one week left in our Kickstarter, we need to raise only $1,000 more dollars to get complete funding in order for us to put out one of the best zines featuring modern analog photographers today. The zine is going to be a beautiful, high quality, limited edition magazine that will adorn your coffee table as a centerpiece. At any time, you’ll be able to pick it up and page through fantastic and well printed photos by these photographers in addition to understanding their psyche. Their stories will seek to inspire both pro and amateur photographer alike.
So far, we’ve chosen four photographers to be featured and you can check out a short glimpse of them here. These photographers have fantastic work with some of them specializing in street photography, portraiture, documentary, landscapes and even experimenting with beautiful films like Kodak Aerochrome. But no matter what, they put gear second to the fact that they’re simply just phenomenal photographers.
One of the big reasons why I wanted to go about creating this zine has to do with the fact that it’s something I’ve always wanted to do. The Phoblographer is seven years old now and most of our content is online but I really want to get into actual magazine creation. Why? Well, there’s something to be said for a tactile piece of content that isn’t pinging you to check your email, notify you of new Instagram followers, advertising to you, or finding some way to distract you from the rest of the story, and I’ve carefully worked to put together. And that’s what I like and want.
Plus: analog film photography simply just looks better on a piece of paper. This has to do with the process involved with a print’s creation.
There are two subscription levels:
- For $25 you’ll get the zine this year.
- For $35 you’ll get the zine and a basic La Noir Image subscription for one year. La Noir Image is our premium publication. It’s crazy affordable considering what you’re getting.
So I really encourage everyone to donate–especially as Analog is making a really big comeback now! Please head over to our Kickstarter and check it out.
And if you want even more from us, you should check out our two day intensive food photography workshop coming later this month.
