Lewis Bush’s War Primer 3 is one of the more Punk Rock photobooks I’ve ever come across. I’m not sure how he would take the characterization, but there’s a precedence for interventions like this in the Punk canon, and I applaud him for it.
Some months ago (back in 2018), Lewis Bush ran a zine making workshop and put together a little guide for his students. I (and others) pestered him to make it more widely available over on Twitter, and in response to popular demand, he did!

I have two of her previous books with Mack, THEM (2014) and Got to Go (2016), so when I heard […]
