Magnum Mix

Earlier this year, and much to my surprise, I was nominated for the inaugural Magnum Photos Graduate Photographers Prize. It was a really weird but frankly hilarious experience.
The prize's terms and conditions for submissions were pretty reductive and I quickly realised that all I could send them was square pegs for their round holes. I ran with it anyway and made a new edit of pictures taken by the sea and a mix that was honest about what I like and what I do. I may have also taken the opportunity to make fun of them a fair bit...
It has now gone from doomed-to-fail WeTransfer to a run of 50 real life things you can buy.
MAGNUM MIX is a 16pp newspaper + a 1hr mix CD and it's £4.99 + p&p. The front and back covers were designed by the amazing Marta Dos Santos and she also hand shovelled all the sequins.
You can buy it here on my new Big Cartel which has some other things I made at uni that are also very nice.
