Fat is a Feminist Issue - The Slim Version

A6 booklet produced in reaction to having read Susie Orbach's seminal book on eating disorders 'Fat is a Feminist Issue'. I felt that while interesting, the book was too lengthy and hard to grasp for someone in my position; male, without eating disorders or body image issues.
'The Slim Version' quite literally cuts away everything she didn't need to say.
Custom Typeface used for title, Courier new for rest of text.

Developed film

Very few of the photos came out recognisably, creating a pinhole camera effect. The rest came out as abstract ambient colours. The guy at Photographique would only develop them because I insisted. The results are not at all what I expected, the film has developed seemingly randomly, but the colours are beautiful! Triptych, they look like abstract landscapes, kinda like sunsets?

May get some of these enlarged, they make great triptychs. Next step is to remake the camera with a pinhole lens, as I think the aperture was too large before resulting in overexposure. Also maybe the camera wasn't entirely light-tight...

Making a Camera

Just experimenting with taking apart a disposable camera and fitting it with a new film, operating like a pinhole camera with a viewfinder...
