VA/BF 2014

Vancouver skyline from Stanley park

Views of the city from the Vancouver Lookout


Two weeks ago we were at the Vancouver Art/Book Fair, a event produced by Project Space that has completely consolidated as the most interesting fair on the NW Pacific coast.

Last year, we sent some photozines and this year, some of you could see them exhibited in one of the Vancouver Art Gallery floors, exactly at the New Understandings of Space. But we weren't satisfied, so this year we decided to go with all the available material (specially new stuff) and say hi to all the people in Vancouver! Here a photographic resume of the three days of exhibition.

Thanks to everyone, specially to Tracy Stefanucci for the good job with the fair and Ted Feighan for the patience (he was my table-neighbor). Also to all the exhibitors that, at one point or another we exchanged some words (specially the last day at night :D)

Northwestern wild by Paula Prats


In trip to Canada, in a small island near Vancouver, Paula Prats begins a visual narrative story in a subjective way, shooting all the incidents that happen around focusing on elements that make the place unique.



Sunbeams through the trees, wooden shelters, the shore and sometimes, the disturbing presence of somebody hiding his face are an example of this enigmatic story Paula tries to show.


Northwestern wild is the name of this first photozine we published from Paula Prats, a young valencian highly motivated photographer with a solid experience and several collective and individual exhibitions throughout the world. You can use our online shop here to buy one, or check our usual bookstores.


With the first 50 photozines, we include a free mini booklet printed by Do The Print, a nice risography studio in Barcelona who rightly suggested that flower seeds paper to print the booklet. Hurry, after the presentation of the photozine in the Gutter Fest, we only have a few!

Carlos Cancela interview on We Are Drifters.

Long-time We Are Drifters contributor and collaborator Carlos Cancela Pinto is back with a new publication, his fifth. Bright On 30 is filled with photos of lazy tourists spending endless summer  days on Brighton’s pier. The beautiful landscape format and gorgeous paper make this book a real treat.


How did the idea behind the series develop?

There was no plan or idea. Last year, in July, I went to Brighton, and because it was my first time I wanted to visit the famous pier. When I arrived to the pier, I was fascinated with the amount of people just having fun in one the hottest day in UK (the temperature was around 30°C). I was lucky with the light and just started shooting all the things that were happening around me: interesting landscapes and people with lots of different sounds, colours and smells. The whole set was shot in one single roll – I was indeed very lucky.

Did it start out as a book concept or did it become that later on?

I thought the whole set was coherent so it was easy to imagine it as a book. I contacted my good friends at Bad Weather Press (who I published Natureza, Luz, Homem) and they were interested...
