Details: I bought this newsprint photo booklet last weekend at 8 Ball’s Zine Fair at the Billiard Palacade in San Francisco’s outer Mission dist. It was a really cool collection of local and not-so-local zine makers and artists. I had actually been following Damien’s tumblr for a little while before the fair and had actually added this title to my “books to buy” list once I found it online. It was a lot bigger than I had thought but the size works great with the really clean images and of course the beautiful color tones that tie them all together. It is definitely a new favorite and everyone should own a copy! Check out Damien’s tumblr, website, and web store below…

Details: I picked up this zine at the LAABF this past February from the VUU Collective(vuu-studio) table. I was four months into my monthly zine project and was instantly attracted to the simplicity and various collections of photos within each zine (as this is #10 of 12, 1/month for a year). This was the last of this particular issue on the table and the website is listing it as sold out so I’m very glad to have gotten one. The color photos inside are curated in a humorous and fluid way with plenty of full-bleed action going on. It’s a great little publication, I wish I had bought more! Check out the collective’s site below as well as the sites of the artists I could find !
We’re launching an open call for photographic exhibition submissions, offering individual photographers or photographic collectives the chance to show their work at a fresh new exhibition space in the heart of West London.
The theme for this open call is the ‘unseen’. We have chosen this theme to run in line with The Portobello Photography Galleries on-going ‘London Unseen’ project.The theme could be interpreted as loosely as possible, whether the work to be shown at the exhibition is five minutes or fifty years old, archives or new work or an idea or project that you’ve been waiting for the right to exhibit.
Following the deadline for the open call for photographic exhibition submissions, ONE GIANT ARM will curate an exhibition selected from the proposals received.
This open call is not limited to the U.K. International submissions are welcomed, however all selected participants will be required to provide the work that will be exhibited at Portobello Photography Gallery during the event in early August. All prints, frames and publications etc must be provided by selected participants and available to be hung a week before the launch night.
If you are interested in having your work exhibited in West London and being a part of our new project please send us an introduction alongside your written proposal including concept, exhibition title, and examples of work with web links to relevant content. No more than an A4 page.
Proposals should be sent to Submit@onegiantarm.com
The open call will end on the 20th July. The selected participants will be notified within two days.
The launch night will be held on the 7th August 2014 running until the 13th August 2014.
ONE GIANT ARM and The Portobello Photography Gallery are excited to embark on a journey into the ‘unseen’ and look forward to viewing the proposals sent over to us for consideration.
