Wasted nights and analog memories with Swiss photographer, Sim Ouch
Words by Sim Ouch
Years of improvised parties, of going nuts in the wee hours of the morning, of trips out into the countryside, of pure happiness with friends and fleeting moments with strangers; all these ephemeral moments that are gone as quickly and are as intense as the light from my flash. Shot live with a small analog camera, those moments are captured on film and forgotten in the reel until development brings them back to life.
As a publisher and Community Interest Company, TRIP is dedicated to showcasing unconventional stories that may otherwise be overlooked. We aim to give a platform to the unseen and a microphone to the ignored. Expression is a right and should not be confined to those that can afford to work for free; which is why we strive to support a diverse range of creatives in their work, commissioning exciting projects and creatives to visualize them.
Founded as a magazine in 2013 by photographer, Dean Davies, TRIP was born from a desire to provide opportunity and exposure for image-makers across multiple platforms and medias. With a focus on people and place, in 5 years TRIP gained a loyal readership, and became known for its honest image output and representation of the underrepresented, featuring over 800 image-makers from across the world through a website, 5 magazines and 3 free zines.
As TRIP C.I.C. we are not interested in profiting from the activities of the organization, and re-invest all income back in to consecutive publishing projects.
