Sampha is getting ready to release a new zine next month called "Shy Light."
In support of his critically acclaimed debut album Process, Sampha has decided to link up with London-based designer Grace Wales Bonner, Dazed art director Jamie Andrew Reid and LA-based photographic duo Durimel to create a brand new zine inspired by the album.
Titled “Shy Light,” the zine is a “visual exploration of Sampha's album Process, formed as a collage of experiences. The publication encompasses abstracted lyrics, photographs from the artist's personal archive and studio, and commissioned reflections of Freetown, Sierra Leone by Durimel.”
"I want to thank Grace and Jamie for all the work and love they've put into creating Shy Light. It's been a pleasure collaborating and inspiring to work with such driven and visionary individuals. We also had the the great fortune of shooting in Sierra Leone with the Durimel brothers" Sampha says.
Running 32 pages deep, look for "Shy Light" to be available sometime in June. Peep a couple photos of the upcoming zine in the gallery (above).
