My issue of ZEKE arrived on Friday and I dived into it this weekend. It was so inspiring and confirmed for me that there is a place for still photography. I love studying and thinking about an image and pondering the moment lighting wholesale it was captured. I can't wait to have a collection of Zeke issues for the coffee table! They will certainly inspire conversation and awareness. Thank you for your work!
