Denver Before Coffee is an ongoing Street Photography zine. The idea of zine started before internet blogs as a DIY, cost-effective way to communicate information about a topic or topics in scenes like punk rock or groups involved in social change. Since visiting the Denver Zine Library I was fascinated with the idea of being able to create a piece of work to showcase my feelings about Denver, the pandemic, and my love for vintage cameras. Taking the pictures was the easy part. Page layout, photo combinations, sizing, and printing all culminated into producing something uniquely mine. With no timelines, management, or roadblocks, I became published. Passion and hardwork were enough to make my goals a reality.
