Paper of the Month for June is Way Over Where from photographer Winnie Au. She filled a mini newspaper with big, bold colours and holy smokes: it looks amazing. Winnie’s work has appeared in all sorts of publications, from Bon Appetit to Modern Farmer, and she has a long client list to keep in touch with — which is where a newspaper comes in. Winnie tells us more:
I’m a NYC-based photographer and love sending out printed promos to photo editors, art buyers, and clients throughout the year. It’s a great way to keep in touch with people through something more tactile than an email. And I really love the creative process of putting promos together.
I printed a newsprint photography promo Wander Over With through Newspaper Club last year and received such a good response that I decided to create a second edition of my photography zine.
This one is called Way Over Where, and it takes you on a visual journey through the homes and workspaces of various people who I photographed throughout the past year. I’m lucky enough to get to work with very talented artists, musicians, designers, chefs, and dogs all over the US.
To create the zine, I started by going through and selecting my best images from the past year for the promo. Next I worked with a designer through several layouts and revisions until we had the right pacing, content, and overall feeling.
The printed copies just came in (yay!) We printed a run of 1,000 and are going to ship 500 to editors, art buyers and art directors, and the rest will be kept on hand as leave behinds.
If you would like a copy of Way Over Where, shoot me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org. To view more images visit winniewow.com
