Thank you to everyone that expressed so much interest in my little, lo-fi zine! ”Visual Noise 2.0” was produced in response to the idea that women, at times, aren’t represented equally in the field of photography whether it’s in front or behind the camera.
The name “Visual Noise” comes from a video project I did one semester as part of my curriculum while in college; I produced my visual interpretation of songs (basically, a “music video”). I feel “Visual Noise 2.0” is an interpretation of how I see things happening around me today.
The zine is lo-fi, black and white and absolutely not perfect and produced in two days(!). The 16 yr old in me came out while cutting and pasting (literally) the layout and it felt so good to know that I was able to express myself as I wanted with no worries of censorship. There might be some things the reader may not agree with or believes is too radical or nutty. My hope is that the reader sits down with some beer or tequila and reads the zine - away from the computer, away from distractions. It’s intimate, personal and hopefully a fun read.
The zine is a collection of things: @Neilpr drew a couple of comics, there are some bnw photos I’ve done, a caffenol recipe I use, news tidbits cut from newspapers with info I feel is interesting and most important two questions I posted on Twitter regarding women in photography along with (some) responses I received.
Please let me know your feedback and also if you’d be interested in a future zine.
Let’s keep the discussion going…
