Intro, a quarterly photography zine, celebrates the work of students from across the Institute of Photography; it is produced completely in-house by graduates from BA(Hons) Press & Editorial Photography, with supervision from Mayn staff members.
The zine has been picked up by Draw Down Books, an independent U.S. publisher that produces small books about graphic design, typography, illustration, photography, art and architecture.
Each Intro zine features the work of a single photography student from Falmouth.
The debut issue presents the work and inspirations of Norwegian-born, UK-based photographer, Nicholas Kristiansen, from BA(Hons) Fashion Photography.
Citing Nick Knight, Michel Pudelka and Viviane Sassen as major influences, Nicholas shares work from four projects: Adventure, Graphic City, Diversity and Graduate Fashion Week.
This introduction follows Nicholas’s success at Graduate Fashion Week 2019, where he assisted esteemed fashion photographer Erika Astrid. You can read more about that here.
Nicholas told us: “My dream is to end up in a big city, whether that be London, New York, Stockholm or Amsterdam – I don’t know yet. But I’ll figure it out. All I know is that I am really excited for the future and the adventures it will bring.”
Mayn Creative is a collective of Falmouth’s students and graduates; creatives, directors and photographers. Team members work on live briefs, led by an experienced professional, are supported by practicing advisors and given access to the latest equipment and studio facilities.
