The F-Stop Club is a collective of visual artists who are interested in DIY self-publishing through the creation of Zine making. The Club believes that within the South African visual culture, it is important to have a platform where artists can produce their own work in order to sustain the practice.
DIY self-publishing has become a very important topic of late and the demand for photographers to be a part of the movement has grown. It is costly to organize traditional books and producing exhibitions in South Africa, so DIY self-publishing becomes a catalyst for an emerging artist to share their work in new, innovate and low-priced ways.
The first edition saw participants, go through 2 weeks of workshops which varied from zine design to DIY printing aesthetic and how copyright and ownership work with self-publishing. The most asked question is whether one can market their work and be in charge of their cash flow which provides for an intruding outcome.
