Empty is run about freely

A Zine by Thomas Powell

Empty is run about freely” is my first leap off Instagram into something physical. Compiled from 900 pictures I took around Japan, the title is taken from a paper bag which wrapped a book I bought. At first glance it seems like a familiar and meaningful phrase, on closer inspection it doesn’t make much sense, unless you want it to. Just like this zine there’s no intended meaning to this project other than life as I saw it in Japan, the people, the moods, and whatever you may take from it.
