Why This Photo Zine Exhibition Captures the Girl Gaze
19 books by 19 women made over the past decade are on view at the NMVA...
Entertainment 25 Jul 2018

Long before blogs, there were zines – independent publications by authors who used photocopy machines to express their ideas.

While it sounds so 1990s, think again.

Now, 19 books by 19 women made over the past decade are on view at the National Museum of Women in the Arts in Washington in an exhibition called Full Bleed: A Decade of Photobooks and Photo Zines by Women, which opens July 30 and runs until November 30, proving how both the art of the photo book and zine culture are both alive and well today.

As Alison Baitz, a photographer and zine-maker in this exhibition says: “The fact that there are zine fests and art book fairs worldwide, from Los Angeles to the Philippines, means that people continue to be excited about seeing zines and making them,” she says.

“The audience for zines has never been bigger—from content-hungry zine fair shoppers to big-name magazines and websites providing coverage of them and their makers. It seems like no matter what kind of zine you make or what it’s about, someone out there (somewhere) wants to read it. It’s a thrilling time to be a part of or interested in zine culture.”
