Zine No.24 in the Hato Press Zine Series: Fiends and Family by Alec McLeish.
Fiends and Family is a piece of work made between 2012 and 2018, it shows my friends (my family) at the beginning of Save Southbank, at a turning point in our lives when the long smokey summers were coming to an end. Not just because of the imminent responsibilities of adulthood, but the very space we’d called home was at risk of being redeveloped, and those memories and bonds we now had would no longer be the realities for the younger generation.
