We chose the name ‘The Third Collective’ as we wanted the whole zine to have a minimalist design throughout, and we felt that using bold, Roman numerals added to this idea. It also visually references us as three individual photographers, with different interests but mutual appreciation for the professionalism within photography.
Working in greyscale was not our original idea, but we decided collectively that it would add to the graphic style we were trying to achieve. It also meant that it would look consistent throughout the whole zine. We also decided on visual style early on, allowing us to work on our separate research, and collate them into the finished zine with ease.
