A photobook project centered around one of Austin's largest subcultures, the Hipsters.
The idea for "Austin Hipster" came to me after visiting our friends there back in November of 2011. They took us around town to the Trailer Park Eatery, Barton Springs, and the heart of downtown Austin. We were walking through the North Loop when we came across a shop that was bursting at the seams with hipsters. It didn't take long after that to see how large of a subculture it was in Austin. Subcultures like this come and go over over the decades and I strongly believe that it's important to capture them on film to preserve a part of our history. The final images will be used to craft a beautiful hard cover photobook to immortalize this movement in Austin.
This project will be shot on a variety of formats: some digital, but mostly 35mm and 120 film. The 120 will be shot with our beautiful Zeiss Ikon camera, which has been in the family for the past 60 years and is capable of taking some amazing photographs.
We've been to Austin before and we'll be hitting spots of town where the hipsters like to hang out. These include SoCo, Hyde Park, Clarksville, Central East Austin, North Loop, Barton Hills and a few others.
The final photobook will be a minimum of 40 pages. The photobooks will be similar in quality to the "coffee table" books you see at your local bookseller.
In addition to the pledge rewards, your name will also be placed on the credits page of the photobook and on our facebook page, along with everyone who made this project a reality.
Updates can be seen on this facebook page, where we'll post updates and a picture or two at the end of each day's shoot! This page will also help us spread the word about the project with our friends and you with yours. Updates specific to our backers will be posted to the kickstarter project page. These updates will include things like the three images to choose from for the limited edition prints.
Our work can be seen on our website: Studio 509 Photography.
