orders of magnitude.


our longtime pal and fellow zinemaking and photography lady liz clayton will be exhibiting some of her stunning work in her hometown of toronto: head over to the mercury espresso bar, 915 queen street east (between logan and carlaw) to see the show, which is called ‘orders of magnitude: photographs from north america’s large and unlikely abandonments,’ anytime during the entire month of november. says liz: “I’ll be exhibiting photographs from an urban exploration series featuring pretty pictures of very large, very forgotten things.”
