Aloha Friday is a blog you can hold.
An on-going project/series, Aloha Friday is Grady Gillan's bi-annual zine comprised of original photos shot on black and white film and laser printed in a 40-page 8.5" x 7" booklet.
Issue #1 was released in July 2010, issue #2 was released in February 2011, issue #3 saw an October 2011 release, and #4 came out in June 2012-- initial runs of all three issues sold out; you may purchase reprints here.
Aloha Friday #5 is slated for a November 2012 release. A small release party will be held but all donors of $7 or more will get an advance copy. All funds will go towards printing and shipping costs with any additional funds going towards more film and processing.
"Honolulu's best amateur photographer." - Honolulu Weekly
"Aloha Friday is a tangible document that celebrates the mediocre, the tawdry and the occasional beauty that surrounds us." - Honolulu Star Advertiser
"Pages that unfold as an of-the-moment narrative that’s both immediate and timeless, ambiguous and familiar, thoughtless and memorable, all shot with a breezy stolidity that remains true to the zine’s slice-of-life namesake."- Honolulu Weekly
