Michelle Spadafore, from Brooklyn New York, creates the zine Haiku & Holga which is a combination of photography (taken with a Holga 135BC gifted to her by her partner) and haiku (what she called “word snapshots” of  her everyday life and inspirations).

She submitted to the Art Exchange Program last year and this year has entered once again… this time with her fifth volume, the special Graffiti Issue.

Her inspiration comes from her grandmother would take Michelle on errands around the city, stopping for Chinese food, and inevitably arriving at the copy shop where she would print up little booklets filled with her poetry and pencil drawings. Her grandmother, probably not even realizing she was making zines, would sent them out to friends and family, sharing with them her art and her life.
