PIN PRICKED, RED BLOOD LET ONTO YOUR VIRGIN SKIN
￼The release of Issue 1 of Dippin Skinny has been long awaited, after a series of complications - it’s ready. Created by two girls across Sydney and Wollongong, ￼the first issue is a fuck you to the aesthetics obsessed nature of most publications. The unrealistic dream state culture of current publications pushed DS into existence approximately a year ago. DS belongs to the generation where our juvenile years coincide with social media as our dominant ‘culture’. A culture hell bent on the use and abuse of women’s bodies - in response to this we looked to
find artists who (when) photographing women (and if explicitly) did not do so from a misogynist gaze. Far removed from the aesthetics based scene in Sydney/Melbourne, DS looks to portray an unflinching self portrait of the world. Fearless and unfiltered, the zine is curated to both please and provoke. We see eight artists briefly dip you into an adolescent thriving lake of gritty film photos and taboo subjects, with issue 2 well on the way, issue 1 is a mere taster of what’s yet to come!
