A Zine You Can Download: Oaktown Report

By - Thursday, September 10th, 2015

The Oaktown Report is the first in what is shaping up to be an ongoing series of digital zines focused on the wanderings of nomadic photographer Irina Weiss, better known as her online moniker @Sugarbombing. After stops in Greece, the United Kingdom, France, Spain, Colombia and Mexico, Irina made a month long stop in Oakland where she collaborated with Madrid based writer Neko. The Oaktown Report is a byproduct of a shared love for the old school DIY culture of trading zines, stickers and photos. With Neko providing substance and connection to a network of writers and Irina providing the preservation, the duo have compiled their work into a slick digital product and have been freely distributing it online. 
With a purely digital distribution model, the report is not for sale and the only hard copies are the ones that people will make if they print it. A departure from the tangible, feel good nature a zine purchase normally brings, the Oaktown Report focuses more on getting a polished product into the hands of as many relevant viewers as possible. So, grab your nice cardstock, and make sure your ink cartridges are full, because you will want to have this in your hard copy collection.  You can download the black and white array of graff and street photography here and check the discussion on the forum and let us know what you think on the Oaktown Report
