    love the idea of a Zine/Photobook…And other great ways people choose to presented there work… Is there a site that you can make one similer to Ye Rin Mok’s ?

    If anyone Knows anything would be great to hear from you.

    Lovely work too, Makes me think of the old straight photographers, interested in detail and the subject..F64 group..

  • She sent a copy of this to me for Blood of the Young during the summer, real nice stuff!

  • this is one of my favorite zines

  • can i get a cuople of words on what a exactly a zine is please…? i can imagine it’s a small booklet/book/personal magazine (maybe that one is a bit off)..but what makes it a zine…?

    thanks in advance…

    • you pretty much said it! i dont know if there is an all encompassing definition but often they are self-published little collections of work – could be art, photography, literature…
