What People Say about Period.
“When thinking of space it’s easy to imagine wide open space: empty, minimal and peaceful spaces,” Stockholm-based photographer and Period. founder Lena Modigh explains. “But there’s also personal space, crowded space, gendered space, virtual.” The zine covers the gamut. There’s a profile on 1940s graffiti pioneer Martha Cooper dousing public space in spray paint, an American criminologist’s account of starting a commune in east London and an essay on isolation by writer Yasmine Ganley. There’s collages of cloudscapes and close ups of crotches."

"Today’s pick is Period., founded by Lena Modigh, who has been making zines for a few years now. She’s a pro at finding fascinating friends to contribute, interesting ways of lensing concepts, and, she promotes a wonderfully collaborative ethic to boot. Period. is just about everything a girl could want from a zine, it’s feminist, celebrates incredible females and explores taboo subjects not often discussed in print publications. It’s a dream to connect with, and makes you feel how wonderful it is to be a girl."
"Focussing on youthful imagery and illustrations, combined with an A4 newspaper format make for an overall really great experience. With their manifesto stating “this is all about being women and fucking cool, because all women are fucking cool, regardless of however they look and whoever they fuck” I’m excited to see what comes next."
