Amass Zine 03: Smear - a foldy photo zine

February 12, 2020  •  Leave a Comment

Issue 03 of Amass is finally here - hooray! It's called Smear: 'to spread or daub (an oily, greasy, viscous, or wet substance) on or over something' and this one is a collection of mucky handprints on a range of walls in public places.

The recurring theme in my personal work has been documenting the traces that people leave behind. I like thinking about the stories behind them - why do people decide to wipe dirt from their hands on to a wall, where it will stay pretty much forever?

It's a 'foldy' zine, made from a sheet of A4 printed by Moo, and folded and cut by me to make a 6-page A7 booklet with an A4 poster on the reverse - three different image variations. The bright white paper is quite thick (200gsm) and I folded it by hand so it doesn't line up totally perfectly, but that's part of the charm!
