Hello lovely Rookie readers!
For those of you based in London, I wanted to make you aware that tomorrow night I am curating an event to celebrate the launch of my duo of zines (published by B RAD zines), which feature my photo diaries and scrapbooks. I have been taking photographs since just before I turned thirteen, and having turned twenty this year, I wanted to do something that marked the fact that I had documented my teenhood from start to finish. Hence why I titled the zines and event TWENTY THIRTEEN.
So for the event, I invited 42 young female photographers to exhibit a work printed on newspaper, based on the theme of freedom, rebellion, youth and femininity. Exhibitors include some of our lovely Rookie photographers, like Olivia, Allyssa, Lauren, Sandy, Dana and Erica. My friends Flamingods and Hypnotized will also be djing.
The event is for one night only, tomorrow night (Thursday 12 December) 6-9pm at Doomed Gallery in Dalston (London, UK).
Zines will be for sale £6 or two for £10, and the majority of the newspaper posters that are on show will be for sale for £5!
You can read an interview with me about the zine and event here too. And a little press release here.
