Stolen

Just like broadsheet papers or Brynne’s career on television, analogue photography is a dying art. With all the wiz-bang editing functions of today’s digital camera, most people have said farewell to their analogue friend along with its ability to capture that which is imperfect.

In spite of this, two Melbournians who both have a deep love for the rawness of film have made a magazine celebrating what the rest of us are trying to leave behind.

Lucy Guernier and Andrew Buchanan met on the job and became fast friends over their mutual “problem” of have too many films lying around; so they decided to make a book.

Aptly titled Stolen, the bi-annual publication describes itself as “a collection of like-minds, a curation of lost & found and a tribute to analogue.”

Stolen lies in the category of book-porn, and if it doesn’t, we’ve put it there anyway,” said Guernier.

We love the tangibility of books and analogue so we have curated a collaboration of works from around the world.”

Stolen is full to the brim of submissions from around the world and from people of all walks of life, both amateur and professional. All mediums – from hand drawn to Polaroid film – are represented in the book’s silky pages. An emphasis on imperfection is not only allowed but in some cases preferred.

“We prefer the unfinished, the unplanned, the unposed, the handmade or hand-drawn,” said Guernier.

Coming from a background in print production meant both not only had a quality of standard for the content but also towards creating a slick publication that people would want to display on their coffee table or share with their friends.

With the first issue now available, both hope that people will see the value of starting a collection of unique and perfectly imperfect hardbacks in an age when digital is king.

Stolen is now available for purchase for $40 and can be found at stolenpublications.com.

Stolen is also open to submissions for issue two, so gather your supplies and head to stolenpublications.com/faq.
