FRIENDS Magazine’s mission is to utilize the publication as
an alternative exhibition space, highlighting a diverse group of emerging
photographers. Each issue revolves around a central idea and experiments with
forms of dissemination. Both analog and digital formats challenge the dominant
modes of commercial art, client-based design and mainstream publishing. The
project aims to build community and artistic camaraderie through conversation,
connection and engagement with both the artist and the public.
The framekwork for the first and future issues of FRIENDS was developed during the last year of my undergradute studies.
The first issue features work from Joseph Caster, Rydel Cerezo, Sade Mia, Kirk Lisaj and Holly Chang
