Last night, my friends and I wedged ourselves into Dashwood Books in Noho for the launch of teenVAG issue two. A collective examination of the female body and feminine sexuality, the self-published zine was founded in 2011 by Natasha Nuñez and Allison Levy and features works from 12 female artists: Aimee Brodeur, Elizabeth Jaeger, Olivia Locher, Carly Mark, Katie Miller, Anamaria Morris, Rebecca Richard, Tara Sinn, Brooke Ellen Taylor, Sophie Van der Perre, Alexandra Velasco, and Jessica Williams.
While the first installment presented the work of photographers, issue two brings in a wider range of artists and artistic mediums. Many of the girls who contributed to the issue were present last night, signing copiesand posing next to their works for photos. I’m honored to have friends in this talented group, congratulations to you all!
