JOHN OLIVER HODGES

We have published a quite a few things with John Oliver Hodges. These are photos from a book called “Squares” we published in 2013. I got to meet him in person in New York a couple times and he is such an awesome interesting guy. That is him as a young man on the left. He is an amazing writer and has multiple books out there. He was in punks bands and has records out. When I met with him he was planning to move to Korea and become a comedian! I haven’t emailed or talked to him in a long time. When we worked on this book, there was actually enough photos to do 2 more books. I’m going to see if we can use those in a future issue of Hamburger Eyes. I will keep you posted.

LELE SAVERI

Lele is so busy with http://8ballcommunity.club/ that I think people forget he is an awesome photographer. He has had made tons of books and zines and photo projects and had photos in a bunch of Hamburger Eyes stuff. Here are some photos of an event that happens in Italy somewhere. We made a zine of it called “Presto”.

We may not be the most “professional” or the most elegant or well designed, but we get to put out great photos. Thank you to everyone that submits photos, you are all so awesome. And thank you to everyone that buys an issue to keep the next one flowing. Here is a peek at the new issue number 33 coming later this week.

ROMANCE WARRIOR

Photo by Michael Barolet

Meeting and trying to date girls was pretty rough pretty much the entire time I lived in San Francisco. So naturally I wanted to make a zine about it. I wanted to make a zine about all the joy and folly of being single. Some friends and I would come up with game show ideas and one of them was titled “Romance Warrior”. That seemed like a good title to steal for this zine. It ended up being a series of 3 issues.

These photos here are highlights from the second issue which was published in 2012. While it was supposed to be about “dating”, it started going the way of “nudes” and became increasingly difficult to find the narrative when editing the submissions. Which, by the way, all of a sudden got kind of out of control and the original concept got lost. Also not enough female perspective in the submissions to keep this series going. At one point I thought maybe I will just make it with my photos since it was my idea, but by that time the title already had a life of it’s own.

Anyways, it is fun to revisit these photos because I couldn’t post most of them on any social media. Let me know if you think we should bring this zine back. Now that Hamburger Eyes is all grown up, I feel like we can start playing with other projects again.
