Zine Review: Harsh Barge

Harsh Barge
photography by Tanner Ballengee
$3 / 48 pages / half letter

Tanner and his friend Connor spent the summer of 2012 motorbiking through Nepal, Cambodia, Thailand, VietNam and India. Harsh Barge is the photographic document of that journey. Early on, I was wishing that there were captions to some of these pictures but learned at the back of the zine that the pictures are also available to view on Tanner’s blog with details on each photograph. I enjoyed the sheer variety posted on the blog but prefer the black & white photos in the zine for their stark otherworldly beauty and mystery. Maybe next time we’ll get a zine that combines both visuals and narrative.
