In 2021, I had collected a number of self-published photo zines, all wonderfully designed and curated little booklets, mostly printed and produced by photographers in the UK. Until this point, I had created several handmade books, and although I still love this process, it is also quite time intensive and the number of books that I can make in my free time is limited. Thus, I decided to try my luck with self-publishing a photo zine, which I will present on this page.
My first self-published photo zine is based on my project ‘Silence’ from which I had also created a hand made book. I had already put some thought and effort into the editing for this book and could build on that. Further thought made me aware of the common theme of this project, which is fog and its links to mythology, as well as the effect that experiencing locations shrouded in deep fog has on me. Thus, I had the topic and image material for my zine. I made some changes to the number of images and the sequencing, wrote an introduction and interlaced the images with titbits of mythology knowledge to keep the interest of the viewer. Lastly, I looked for a printing house in Germany where I ordered 66 copies of my booklet, which sold out within 6 weeks. Altogether, this was a very instructive and satisfactory experience that I hope to repeat one day.
Below you can have a look through the digital version of my booklet.
