Zine Vol. 3 by Jaklin Romine // Why Bring Me Flowers When I Am Dead? When You Had The Time To Do It When I Was Alive
Why Bring Me Flowers When I Am Dead? When You Had The Time To Do It When I Was Alive
Is the title of my working photographic series where I make trips to the Downtown LA Flower Mart once a week. I select different combinations of flora for an arrangement of flowers for my home and for the home of my grandmother. Then I take pictures of the flowers in my home and I take a bouquet of flowers over to her house . The zine contains pictures of the bouquets that I give my grandma combined with poetry, sayings, and quotes from my grandmothers story that expresses the love and relationship we share. The layout is designed to take you through layers of paper that accent colors of the floral imagery with different sizes, shapes, translucency, and little texture surprises that pop off the white paper.
