As usual, I was up the night before printing and stapling my new zine together. This one I made with a friend. We stayed up for 24 hours and took one photo an hour to a set theme.

James explains our new zine:

Sometimes drifting through time’s gentle currents and eddies you’re able to watch, as if moving past motorised dioramas in a papier mâché cave, life actually happening. The collective construction of the present. Minuscule moments of habit. We wanted to mark with a keen eye the details of one day as it’s assembled. For twenty four hours, these were our lives as we lived them.
