I Am a Camera #7

Neat quotation about why zines matter and indirectly why zine preservation matters from I Am a Camera #7 by prolific zinester and author Vanessa Berry.

"Zines capture moments in the lives of their creators. Each zine I have made has been distilled from my life at that time, the things I found important which occupied my thoughts. Each issue updates and consolidates the image I hold of myself; I have been making them for so long that they are a necessary part of my life. Without writing my obsessions and ideas would remain undefined. I don't think I could explain anything properly. So this issue is aobut places, and memories of places, and this is me, at the end of 2002."
