Photographic Memories of Zinefest 2009

Thank you to everyone who exhibited at this year’s Zinefest, or attended and spent time with us.

Photos of Zinefest 2009 are now up on our flickr account for you to view. If you re-post the photos elsewhere, or print them for any reason, please credit the Zinefest photographer Sarah Jordet for her work. She took almost all the photos you see on our flickr account, and below.

This year, we had Sarah J. photograph everyone at their table on Saturday. Have fun looking through the gallery and finding your favorite zinesters! To get to the largest size of the photo available, you will have to click it (and be transported to a new page) twice. Exhibitors are free to use their own photos for promotional purposes, or however they want.

If you have any photos of Zinefest to share, please add them to our group pool on flickr! LINK
