#LIVINGOFFTHEWALL presents a documentary series about 4 self-publishers photographers by Tobin Yelland
Ray Potes discusses how he started making zines as a better way to share his photos with friends who lived far away. Today, his zine ‘Hamburger Eyes’ is one of the most sought after around the world.
While Ray may struggle at times living paycheck-to-paycheck, he wouldn’t trade his zine-making for anything and is happiest taking photos, making zines and having fun.
Wild child Andrea Sonnenberg takes us on an adventure as we see life through her lens in San Francisco. Her photos of friends, youth and the world around her aren’t planned, and like life--they just happen.
Working seven days a week to pay for the dream of being a photographer, Andrea says, “I think my lifestyle is very unique. Some people don’t like it. I think it’s awesome.”
Lele Saveri is an Italian in New York City. We travel with Lele as he photographs the characters he meets in the streets of NYC and learn about the origins of his zine, the 8 Ball Zine fairs and his inspiration. Lele feels content and that he has succeeded to create something he will forever be proud of.
Clint Woodside views the mundane, but through his lens it is transformed into something more, something beautiful and something worth taking the time to look at a little closer. Clint discusses how he started his publishing company ‘Dead Beat Club’ and the reward of influencing young people to self-publish their own work.
