Check out this zine by Melissa Williams, originally sold at the Klick Klack exhibit. All shot on her iphone around Europe, pretty fucking cool. I'm not too sure, but if you keen I'm pretty certain you can get one from Clarkes. I really think more people here should be doing this.
Styling for the wonderfully humble photographer Xavier Vahed last year, these are some extra's, that I hadn't seen. ( the old ones which are great and don't feature I have already blogged and you can see them at http://lanispice.blogspot.com/2011/10/willovale-hotel.html ) We rented a room out by the hour at the Willowvale hotel in Durban, a hotel where prostitutes and Phillipino's reside. These two below are my favourites. You can check the rest on his Wordpress link below...

This is the only image that came out of this roll of film and it reminded me of the Adam Broomberg and Oliver Chanarin series The day nobody died basically re-framing war photography which I really enjoyed please check them out all their works are really cool...
Text from their site about this work:
"In June of 2008 Broomberg and Chanarin traveled to Afghanistan to be embedded with British Army units on the front line in Helmand Province. In place of their cameras they took a roll of photographic paper 50 meters long and 76.2 cm wide contained in a simple, lightproof cardboard box. They arrived during the deadliest month of the war. On the first day of their visit a BBC fixer was dragged from his car and executed and nine Afghan soldiers were killed in a suicide attack. The following day, three British soldiers died, pushing the number of British combat fatalities to 100. Casualties continued until the fifth day when nobody died. In response to each of these events, and also to a series of more mundane moments, such as a visit to the troops by the Duke of York and a press conference, all events a photographer would record, Broomberg and Chanarin instead unrolled a seven-meter section of the paper and exposed it to the sun for 20 seconds. The results - seen here - deny the viewer the cathartic effect offered up by the conventional language of photographic responses to conflict and suffering."
