About this project

Empty Stretch is a photography collective interested in exposing & publishing emerging photographers. Over the past year we have self- produced short run zines, including; Empty Stretch: Home, Mediations 1-4, as well as Aaron Canipe's Eden & My Golden Girl of Summertime, Jordan Swartz's Pickpocket Blues series & Nathaneil Grann's Aspects of Patriotism. TWENTY/12 will be our first venture into the book publishing world. 

Twelve photographers located in different parts of the world all photographed on New Years day. It is a day of new beginnings, fresh starts and for some a clean break. By having multiple people photograph under the construct of a single day; traditions, reflections, resolutions, commonalities and differences are brought forth. The New Years day becomes more then just a single day but rather a precursor of things to come. TWENTY/12 is the document of these twelve photographers findings and new beginnings.

The photographers include:

Aaron Canipe
Caroline Carpenter
John Edmonds
Michael Evnen
Nathaniel Grann
Mark Harley
Veronica Melendez
Jordan Swartz
Justine Tobiasz
Liora Valero
Tucker Walsh
Sara Winston

This is something that we feel very passionate about but need some help getting things off the ground. We have produced many high-quality zines throughout the past year and now we are ready to publish our first book to the same standards. Please visit Empty Stretch for more information and updates throughout the fundraising process or email any questions/concerns to emptystretch@gmail.com.


Thank you!
