Photographic series by Tom Shackleton / Zine

 

1. What is your zine about? What is the overall culture/ themes that run throughout the photo series?

This zine is a collection of photos that document my friends at the parties we have been to in the last year or so. I guess it falls under the genre and vibe of 'youth culture' but my intention wasn't to document youth culture itself, but more to capture the fun memories spent with friends in the final months of high school. Making this zine meant that my friends and I can look back on the fun memories we shared before we all go our separate ways with the start of uni coming up. It's just a little fun ya know.

2. What Inspired you to create this piece of work?   I think it was just me wanting to capture my friends and the fun we had. I guess being around other people who are also creating things inspired and drove me to publish the zine as well. Like my buddy Alex, who's in the zine quite a bit, he takes nice photos then pairs them with his own drawings and paintings. It's very cool, he's a talented guy. Also I like physical things, like records and photos books and stuff. Oh and handmade stuff is really cool. It's like connecting with the artist somehow, I love it. That inspired me to include a unique, hand-drawn cover on each copy of the zine.
