End of year Review: Zines
December 29th, 2012

“Zine”marcvallee.co.uk

No surprise that I’m a big fan of zines and independent book publishing. Bringing out two of my own zines this year has been a great deal of fun and very rewarding. The inspiration came from friends. In particular Andreas Laszlo Konrath via Pau Wau Publications in New York City and Brian David Stevens via Hamburger Eyes.

Plus a big thank you goes out to both my designer Colin Robinson from CRA Design and Lucy Moore from Claire de Rouen Books. Getting a yes from Lucy was a great day and she has been very supportive of both zines.

The plan for 2013 is to put out three new zines and build up to publishing a book in 2014. So with that I would to thank everyone who bought a zine this year. Bottom line I could not have done it with out you.

ALK skateboarding circa 1999 / 2000 from Andreas Laszlo Konrath on Vimeo.

This takes me back. My good friend, photographer and skateboarder, Andreas Laszlo Konrath back in 1999/2000.

As Andreas puts it, “This is me skateboarding back in the day. My friends Ollie and Rich owned a skateboard company called Com!c Skateboards and this is my section from the video we made together called 1.21 Gigawatts. Old local town spots and some fun times!!!”

Plus one of my pictures (below) of Andreas in Brighton in 2000 when I was still shooting on film!
