Hell No. Photo book by Garrett Faber

1:35 pm in photography,zines dustin hostetler

I’ve got mixed emotions about digital publishing. Sure, I make Faesthetic on a computer, but the final product is always on paper. Something about holding the art in your hands just feels right. That said, digital publishing has come a long way in the past year and now sites like Blurb aren’t looking so bad. Previewing a magazine online before you buy / print your own copy isn’t much different than flipping through a magazine at the bookstore before buying.

Enter Garrett Faber and his new photo zine Hell No. He’s a really good photographer, that seems to really get his subject matter. (mostly pretty girls) and his subjects seems really comfortable in front of him, which translates into a lot of feel good, fun times photos.

Megan Martin’s Dress Paintings

I love these simple dress paintings made by Megan Martin.

“After I moved to this wonderful city from Los Angeles, I was inspired to paint all the fashions of San Francisco… I started to paint the favorite dresses borrowed from my good girlfriends here. Each dress expresses their unique personality and it was a fun way to bring my love of fashion and painting together.”
