The newsprint as a medium for photographers


General Photography

The British Journal of Photography features a great article about the use of newsprint by photographers. My favourite quote comes from Rob Hornstra: “That’s the problem we’re facing, people are still thinking about the idea of it being an actual newspaper. You shouldn’t. You should think about it as being a series of pages with which you can do whatever you want. Most of the newspapers I’ve seen are still fairly conservative. But you can turn it in all directions; readers can create their own layout and sequence. You can fold it in two or in four. You can print images across several spreads to make posters.”
