Every Summer film photography zine
Hello! I’m Matt Murray. I’m a photographer, writer and podcaster from Brisbane, Australia. In 2019, my family and I spent six nights on the Isle of Wight as part of a one-month overseas trip. My wife spent many summers there growing up, but although I’d lived in the UK for 13 years, this was my first visit. When I got back to Australia, I had my film developed: there was something special about these images, so I decided to publish them.
Every Summer is my first film photography zine: forty-eight pages of colour film photographs and original anecdotes about the Isle of Wight. Essentially, it’s a book of images depicting my relationship with England. Comforting. Idyllic. Deeply nostalgic. My photos are influenced by traditional travel photography. Shooting in colour, I like to compose by decluttering what I see through the frame, presenting the viewer with a scene that they could stumble across themselves.
