Sunday Zine Review #34: Symbl 01 & 02

Symbl is a series of publications and websites from Adam Shield, Anna Brass and Chris Minchin. Jakub bought the first two issues and I asked him if I could take some photos and write a little review.

Each publication seems to have a different topic, although I still haven't figured out what's the concept behind Symbl 01. Apart from this, the zine is nicely printed on newspaper and I really enjoyed the selection of images.

Symbl 02 is all about animals. Again, the photo selection is pretty good and this time the format chosen is the conventional zine binding but using a size somewhere between A4 and A5.

There will be another two publications that will be relased later this year. I'm actually excited to see what formats and themes the guys behind Symbl will choose.

You can get the first two issues here.

Sunday Zine Review #33: Untitled Photographs by Tim Barber

This is not really a zine review but thougth about sharing the work of one of my favourite photographers.

When I discovered Tim Barber's photos, he quickly became one of my main inspirations. I love how he doesn't rely on naked bodies, or anything else which could be considered provocative, to create stunning images.

You can check Tim's fashion and personal work here.

Sunday Zine Review #32: Bikeshed 01

A couple of weeks ago, the girls behind Bikeshed zine started following me on Twitter. They were presenting the zine at Nottingham Zine Fair and I asked them if they wanted to have it reviewed here.

Last Friday I received a nice package consisting of Bikeshed 01, a tote bag and some stickers and cards. Thanks a lot again for sending it!

The first issue of Bikeshed is called the Locker Talk issue. The zine features photos, collages and texts around those years at secondary school and everything that was happening during the classes and behind the bike shed.

I love the idea and really like how Bryony, Holly and Hannah (the editors of Bikeshed) have come up with the different sections that compose the publication.

The Detention Slip feature is great, it is a collection of – hopefully real – detention notes from different schools and years. Photographer Tommy Francis portrays the middle class youth of South West London, and some of the most memorable school experiences of the zine contributors are shared along photos of drawings and texts carved on the class’ desks.

If you like what you’ve read and want to get a copy of the zine you can do it here for just £4!

Remember to follow Bikeshed on Twitter to stay updated on any future issues!

Sunday Zine Review #31: Landmark Seizures

Ralph Dorey sent me a copy of Landmark Seizures last week (Thanks a lot Ralph!). On its site, Landmark Seizures is described as a strata of work by five artists and writers.

Nicole Bachmann, Ralph Dorey, Beatriz Olabarrieta, Gino Saccone and Evan Calder Williams are involved in this project that "recognises matter as the world of the unprescribable, a world where the written is accepted as unreliable, pliable and craked."

The zine, which is a combination of texts, photographs and drawings, is a proposal for work that will be exhibited at locations that have not been yet fixed.

Landmark Seizures is printed in blue recycled paper and is available at several retailers across the UK. You can find more info about it here.
