“you possess the illusion that once your object of obsession/vicarious objectification leaves you, even momentarily, you will perish, because you are so convinced of your own demonic and pathetic insufficiency. ” – Jim Chambers

Today I’m happy to blog about a terrific new magazine in the NEW ORLEANS area that you should be tres excited about! MOMMA TRIED is happening, and it features some wonderful up and coming New Orleans writers and photographers in a collaboration that aims to re create that special dirty intellectual spark you may have felt finding your fathers Playboy or Penthouse magazines from the seventies. Full of brilliant photographers, talented stylists and and heterogeneous models, you should have no problem breezing happily through their first issue. Drawing on themes such as Kenneth Anger, childrens games of the sixties and the iconic Stevie Nicks as inpso, its going to be hard to put the damn thing down I’m sure! Check out their Kickstarter vid for more info on the publication and how you can be a part of its launch!
Also here are some sneak preview images from the first issue:
PS. Also you can check out my post about one of their super talented photogs Sarrah Danziger, in my blog archives! XO
