I’m a huge fan of self produced zines and have built up a bit of a collection over the years. There is something special about someone wanting to put their photos, words and ideas out there in a DIY, pre-Internet, tactile way.
So needless to say I was stoked to see a new local zine the other day, Gnar Pages by local photographer and skateboarder Eugene Noble. We’ve featured Eugene’s amazing photography previously on a couple of occasions and he is one of Southsea’s young new breed of local creatives and this new zine is really good. Gnar Pages is a sort of skatespot directory featuring some famous and not so famous Portsmouth and Southsea skatespots but also includes Eugene’s own thoughts and memories on the locations.
The zine is free and has been distributed here and there around Southsea so keep your eye’s peeled if you want a copy. You can also check the zine and Eugene’s photography and artwork on Flickr HERE.
