Vegas: a new photobook zine from No Thoughts Magazine by Michael J DeMeo & Joseph Zentil
Vegas is the new photozine project from photographer Michael J DeMeo and emerging film director and MTV Video Music Awardnominee Joseph Zentil.
Zentil and DeMeo took their cameras to Vegas in August 2012 to brave the 108 degree temperatures and capture this series of personal and intimate photographs. Vegas is in all actuality a photo-diary, a week spent among friends in the desert, a voyeuristic glimpse into the life of young creatives on holiday.
This new project is published via No Thoughts Magazine. Vegas is 24 pages, 8.5 x 11″, printed on 80 lb glossy paper, limited to 100 copies and available for $6, released March 2013.
No Thoughts is also offering the project digitally for viewing on iPad, iPhone, or home computer for only $1.99
