As you most likely know, our Analog Zine Kickstarter was fully funded. Again, a genuine thank you to everyone who donated. But I’d like to summon everyone’s attention who was interested in donating to the project but didn’t because it was too early on. With less than 48 hours left in the campaign, at this point you’re basically just buying a zine with the option of a year long basic subscription to La Noir Image; our premium black and white photography website.
I’ve started to look through a lot of the submissions for the analog photography zine and there’s a ton of good stuff. But I encourage more people to submit in addition to sharing the project with all your friends. We’ve got four solid photographers already set, but the zine is going to be 100 pages and it isn’t just going to feature their work. I’d love to profile up to 20, but I’m also going to be very discerning here. Why? I want to really inspire people to get into analog photography again–to pick up a film camera, load it up, and go out there and make some of the best images of their life. And to do that, this zine will feature not only photos but short interviews with each photographer getting into their psychology about why they create in the specific way that they do.
Photographers and those just getting into the analog photography world will be able to experience work from so many film shooters who have worked hard on getting looks in their work that is tough to mimic with digital photography. For example, we’ve got Daniel Zvereff, who uses Kodak Aerochrome for his Introspectives project. We’ll also be exploring some of the work of photographers who use Portra, CineStill Emulsions, and so many others. But first and foremost, we’re putting good work at the heart of it.
Go ahead and donate: it’s $25 for a zine, or $35 for a zine and a year long subscription to La Noir Image.
