The UK’s Matt Martin is a film photographer working out of Brighton. His work gives us a refreshingly intimate look at adventure, a subject that’s typically trampled to death by passionless snapshots, Matt shows us how to do it right. He’s also an extra hardworking and motivated young man, heading up The Photocopy Club, a series of DIY photography exhibitions aimed to take photography off of the screen and back into the hands of the people using one of the most accessible mediums – the photocopy. The next show opens in London on Feb. 3rd.
Much of this series of photos was taken from Matt Martin’s new double-zine Goodnight Neverland / Thank God I’m Forgiven published by No Fun Press.
Juan Gabe is an excellent example of a talented young gentleman throwing it all to the wind. A true leader of the pack, this SF Bay area native keeps his hands dirty with a little bit of everything – drawing and illustration, photography, and he also plays in one of the most face-stomping DIY punk bands of all time, Comadre. Doom Crew Lifer! Enjoy the small sample of work that he sent us in the cut.
Dimitri Karakostas is a hard working photographer from Toronto, Canada. He’s made a whole pile of new work since we last checked in. His sometimes beautiful, sometimes beautifully garish images are the result of his dedication to the analog medium. Rejecting common digital editing has opened his work to a whole world of great tactile manipulations and experimentation, techniques often overlooked by other young photographers.
And hey, Dimitri also co-founded Blood of the Young Zine in ’08. Its a great project aimed at promoting and publishing new photographers, creatives, and troublemakers. If you’re in Toronto until Dec. 10th make sure to check out his work in the Dying Breed group exhibition at 285 Dundas W. This Canadian doesn’t quit!
