Innerviews #1-5

Color! Insight! LocaL! Saturated with love! That's how I gotta describe Innerviews. This wicked little monster of a local zine that's the brain child of Michelle Franco, local writer/journalist is a local project to keep track of. As it's title suggests, Innerviews gives us glimpses of people from around our city via short, compelling interviews. Each issue is unique as Michelle works with a variety of topics and people who support the written framework with their art & design. It's been great to watch this zine mature and move ever more in the direction of a stand-alone fluid work of art. The photo issue (#5) is super fresh with an all color look and a poster fold out to keep you smiling all day! :D The interviews in 5 center around local photographers Mad Tam Lopez, Bryan Hainer, Chris Jones, Jorge Novoa, Mr. Riskit & Cunt Dracula. We are waiting the arrival of back issue #6 which has a really sick photo shoot and interview with local band THE OBJEX. Issue 7 is set to be published in September so we'll keep you updated on any exact release date. Visit the crew online here Innerviews or check out their physical space while you are at the Zine Library(they have a great spot at the Emergency Arts center 520 Fremont St that's accessible most business hours)! We Love Zines! Especially Locals! GO forth! Cut & PASTE!
