I WANT YOU AROUND: $?, 5½” x 8½”, color copied, 42 pgs.

I Want You Around is a short but engaging zine compiled of color photos by Abby Banks. Abby’s done a lot of traveling and touring with bands over the course of ten years. These photos include shots of nature and bands, but mainly pictures of friends and other random people. I’m so glad she made this color, as it makes the scenes more vibrant and real. These photos could easily be mounted and placed in a photography show, pondered, and reflected upon. They’re full of energy and contain scenes from all over the United States (and some abroad). The photos show people really living—excited and in the moment. That’s not to say that this zine changed my life or moved me spiritually, but of the many photo zines I’ve reviewed over the years this is certainly the best. ([email protected])
