Sunday Zine Review #08: American Surfaces by Alex F. Webb

I went to Glasgow yesterday and paid a visit to Good Press Gallery, best place to buy zines in Scotland (online as well) so check their site or go and spend an afternoon in there.

Came back to Edinburgh with three new zines, so will be reviewing the rest during the next weeks.

American Surfaces is a A6 zine by Alex F. Webb, who is one of the founders of Fourteen-Nineteen. If you haven't heard about what they do, go and check their site as they have some pretty cool things in it.

American Surfaces is composed of images taken over one month in America with an iPhone, must admit that I'm not a big fan of mobile phone photography but this small book is beautiful and love how the images are put together in pairs. The main subjects of the photos are everyday objects, with a focus on textures or qualities that are not usually perceived at first glance.

If you want to get a copy you can do it here.
