Zinester: Giving Marginalized People a Voice Through DIY Magazines

zinester01

Zinester, a not-for-profit, is on a mission to give marginalized people a voice by teaching them how to make DIY magazines, and using what they create for social change. The group’s 6-week workshop in Nairobi, Kenya effectively taught the kids involved in the program how to express themselves visually, through writing and photography.

You can follow the project on their website, and on Instagram. Have a look at some spreads from their zines as well as a video below!

He then photographed them for a series intended to reflect on real world issues like Greece’s economic crisis and our general global confusion in a playful, absurdist, and child-like way.
