An Interview with Igor Termenon of Girls on Film Zine
Girls on Film is a contemporary photography zine edited by Igor Termenon which showcases portraits taken with film cameras. Igor Termenon was born in northern Spain and currently lives in Edinburgh (UK). He works in digital marketing and spends most of his free time shooting editorials for the likes of Vice, Contributor Magazine and TenMag, as well as editing his film photography zines Girls on Film and Boys on Film.
The first issue came out in March 2011.
After I released the first two issues of Girls on Film I decided to give it a try and see if a Boys issue would work. People really liked it so I decided to go on publishing it every two Girls issues. After the last Boys issue came out last month, I’ve decided that I’m going to alternate between girls and boys every month.
When I made the first issue I was studying in Liverpool and wasn’t taking too many photos, so I decided to start the project and, at least, keep myself entertained with something related to photography. I had always been interested in the editorial side of photography so thought about trying to put something together and came up with Girls on Film.
Facebook is a great place to find new photographers. I think most of us are friends there and it’s easy to see people’s work and find exciting things.
I think it’s the satisfaction you feel after finishing every new issue. I also get very nice emails and comments on Facebook and I guess that shows you’re doing a good job in some kind of way.
I really want to do something new, I have some ideas in mind but they’re still not developed, so I’m going to wait and see if I can finally implement them.
I’ve been shooting some fashion editorials and have done a street style series in Glasgow for New York Magazine that should be published in the next few weeks.
Apart from that, I’ve been reviewing a new zine every Sunday on my blog. I think I started in November last year and it’s become pretty popular!
I always mention Tim Barber and Cass Bird as two of my favourite photographers. I also like Michael Hauptman´s work.
