Some photographs are more important than others. Preserved memories of people you love and friends you have lost, places that shaped your understanding of the world and events that had a significant impact on your life. romka magazine is devoted to this one print that you keep in your wallet, on the desk at work or on your fridge door. Pictures of great sentimental value that gain their quality through the personal experiences they are connected to and not through form or content. It is not about your best pictures, but about your personal favorites.
we recently designed a small zine about self publishing culture and its history. we produced it (nearly) completely analogue by resizing the images on a copier, cutting and arranging texts and images manually on sheets of paper and even went through the imposition the analogue way!
the result of our latest workshop event, the zinefactory #3 in cologne-ehrenfeld is now available in our shop! have a look at some nice previews — the zine contains a few interviews and photography from cologne (köln) – ehrendeld, a creative quarter with an emerging fashion scene!
