Die Trying #2


via NeuFutur Magazine by admin on 12/25/07

This is a book of pictures that has a little bit of commentary by the editor of the magazine. The editor used to work at a photo lab, and was able to take some of the trash photos home, and this is the product of that scavenging. Each page has a picture, and a little bit of writing, continuing a narrative that, in its brevity, is still able to explore the editors psyche by using other people’s pictures. Personally, something small really gets me with this magazine, and that is the editor’s use of a rubber stamp to show important ideas, as the rest of the text is placed out in a clean writing style. I do have a little bit of a problem with the fact that the editor does not have an opening page with a little bit of their information. If you’ve noticed my use of non-gender specific pronouns, it is because I have no inkling what sex that the editor is. I have an idea, but I really need to stop assigning values to genders. An extremely personal touch is noticed on the cover, as the editor goes and pastes a different picture on each cover. Think about that… every single issue the editor places out for sale is unique, different…and I like that. Send some money to Second Period Industries, PO Box 948, Athens, Georgia 30603-0948.
