Who are you? I’m Reilly Hodgson. I make pictures and I also publish books and other editions using other people’s pictures. // What is on your ipod/bookshelf? Trap music and hardcore. Zines and early 00’s screamo records. // Where do you seek inspiration? ”The wrong side of the tracks” // When did you start creating? I used to draw awful comic books and sonic the hedgehog posters when I was a kid, like anyone else; but got serious about art and photography when I was 12 or 13 after a friend and I snuck into his older sister’s room to steal copies of Under Pressure and Graphotism that she had brought home from the city. There was no internet yet and those mags were really mind-blowing. // Why Toronto? Out of convenience, despite how inconvenient living here can be.
Who are you? Dimitri Karakostas. I’m a photographer, publisher, writer, skateboarder, fancy boy. // What is on your ipod/bookshelf? Lots of Dylan, lots of emo, lots of rap. Lots of Kundera, lots of Kerouac, lots of xeroxes. // Where do you seek inspiration? Oftentimes, I guess, alleyways and margins. Anywhere narrow. // When did you start creating? That’s one of those questions that’s really funny… because every dork wants to say ‘since day one!’ I suppose I made my first zine in grade 2, which was drawings of bart simpson and cool arrows and that letter ‘s’ that everyone used to make. I think I started taking photographs seriously when I was thirteen or fourteen. // Why Toronto? I was going to ask you the same thing.
