Zine blog - Zine notes

This page results from the following in the tutor feedback to Asg. 3 (the text has been reordered but the content not altered),

I am going to recommend know that you further develop this interesting submission into a more resolved form – perhaps by producing it in a zine or PDF form before final submission.

Zine, draft

[30May20] Here's an early, lowres draft, printed and bound on 31st.

[8Jun] Here's another, nearing completion, in Doves Type.

[30Jun] I have removed those two. Here's the latest which includes Asg.5, just the rework and it's done.


Zine, initial thoughts

[23May20] I wrote in the blog,

I like the idea of creating a magazine on self-portraiture and Brandt but cannot promise not to keep the production in-house. (The workers should, in my view, control the means of production.) However, I will engage with the Newspaper Club to take advantage of their software…

So the main outcome is that I will learn how to create a zine (or, in my terms, a pamphlet). That is quite an exciting prospect. I might extend it to contain the last three assignments and use it as the basis for my final assessment.

blog, 23rd May

I am in the process of reworking Asg.3, showing my images together with their sources and a little explanatory text. This will form part 2 of the pamphlet.

Part 1 will be a reworking of the text around Asg.3. I wrote on the rework page yesterday,

The original text is on the submission page: I will add a few notes here and eschew formal referencing. I might use a similar format in the pamphlet, following an extended essay (1,00+ words?) on self portraiture covering the selfie / s-p divide, authorship, performance and my theory of the disparity of m/f approaches to the genre. Gazes should get a mention. Asg.3 rework

The working title is Brandt, a growing realisation (or maybe gradual). that is intended to be vague, suggestive and descriptive of my journey through Asg.3 and Asg.4 in unequal measure.

The intention is to finish the image rework, write some words, have a play in InDesign and then in Newspaper Club.

I will continue with this in a specific Zine Blog and post a pdf to read here is and when I finish it.
