A Conversation About Print in a Digital World
Today marks the start of what will hopefully become an ongoing feature here on POST NEW; a conversation between us, a web-based entity, and the independent print industry, represented by several of our favourite independent print magazines.
Yamamura Gasho: The Children Living In Washington Heights 1959-196204/12/2012
During the post-World War II allied occupation of Japan, photographer Yamamura Gasho would visit a neighborhood known as 'Washington Heights' - a residence for U.S. officers in the region. Now known as Yoyogi Park, the location and its occupants seen through Gasho's striking images might come across as a typical American town, though this is obviously far removed from the truth. To the keen eye of Gasho, the continuation of everyday life in an upturned society was a source of fascination, and the photographer revisited many times to document this foreign occupation.
Louis Brodinski is a French Dj, producer and entertainer. POST NEW interviewed this multitalented guy in Paris at le Palais Tokyo, to delve into his universe and discover what's coming up for Louis.
Karl Hab: Who’s Brodinski?
Louis Brodinski: It’s always hard to describe yourself - my real name is Louis, I’m 25. I’m a DJ, producer and “ENTERTAINER”. I've been in the business 5 years, my passion became my job and I recently created my label, aka BROMANCE. It’s a digital music label.

Yi Zhou Interview
A rose by any other name would smell so sweet. Like a true Renaissance woman, Yi Zhou is an adept artist with multiple skills.
Adding to the long list; filmmaker, animation innovator, writer, composer, poet and muse, Zhou has just lent her eye and skill to a new line of jewellery for Gripoix, a revered fashion archivist’s top source for poured glass jewellery since 1869.
No Age Interview
Dean & Randy
Randy Randall and Dean Spunt make up No Age, the Los Angeles-based musical duo whose sound has expanded radically over the last seven years, from humble punk beginnings, to the point where generic definition is near impossible. Genres only serve to pigeon hole, after all, and No Age - musically, and in a wider artistic sense - have never been content to sit still and put out ordinary records.

Make a Film with Lars von Trier20/08/2012
What happens when a master challenges the people? When everyone is invited to reinterpret some of the greatest art pieces of our time? Is it within everyone to make art? And do we stand out the most when we stand together?
I see all sides to everything: the downtrodden, the rage, the free spirits rising and wrapping themselves around everything, tying it all up in a knot. Like Scratch Lee Perry, I came I saw I conquered, but it was only when I’d bounced from Moscow to the Cape Flats to Jo’burg to Sao Paulo to Shanghai to Gurgaon to Jerusalem to Hastings that I began to understand the difference; to get that there are so many disparate strands to our glorious global culture that – often-or-not these days – is used to peddle sneakers, soda, and other digital dreams.
